Fall is a great time to observe Red-tailed Hawks. On this night, I noticed at least six hawks on various telephone phones and streetlights along the George H.W. Bush tollway. I spotted this one at the first traffic light I encountered after exiting the tollway. The red light gave me the time I needed to retrieve my camera.
