Red-tailed Hawk

I pulled over to the side of a New Jersey road and stopped at this red-tailed hawk to take a picture from the passenger side window. It turned to watch me.
It was sitting on a wire surveying an open field, which is the red-tail's style of hunting. He kept his eye on me as I snapped another couple of shots.
Note the red tail from which the bird gets its common name. Click to enlarge.
It turned to check me with the other eye. Not wanting to be too disturbing, I drove away and left it to its hunting.
