2021 Audubon Photography Awards Video Category Winner: Red-Tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawk by Bill Bryant.

The National Audubon Society is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to conservation. We protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow.

Story Behind the Shot: Over several days I watched a pair of Red-tails taking advantage of the strong early summer winds streaming down from the Rockies, hovering in midair while scanning the foothills for mice and ground squirrels. This one floated almost level with my lens. His head stayed still while his body moved, his wings and tail steadying him and his dangling feet acting as ballast.
