I observed this pair of Red-tailed Hawks at the busy intersection of Jupiter Road and Arapaho Road in Richardson, Texas. This is a very busy intersection with a lot of automobile traffic.
Hawks seem to be attracted to these intersections by the reliable congregations of Rock Doves and other birds such as Great-tailed Grackles and Eurasian Collared-doves.
This appears to be a male and a female. The male is perched at the top of the pole. The larger female is on the crossbar.
