Hey! These aren’t bad at all!

I think those are GREAT photos! You’ve got “why is it called a red-tail?” in the second photo, and a surprising view — note where the beak and claws are, and how the feathers spread — in the third.

hey lavenderbay,
That type of hawk has red tail feathers thats why its called a red tail.
I was lucky enough to live near some red tail hawks for a few years in Kansas. The crows and the red tails work to gether when hunnting. The crow would bring game out in the open fore the hawks and the hawks, intentionaly or becaouse there slopy eaters, would leave a bit of food for the crows. I realy injoyed waching them. both the red tailed hawk and the kansas crow are my totems.
