Up and Back
October 26, 2010 § Leave a comment
I have just gotten back from Glens Falls New York. It is a lovely little town in upstate New York. There were lakes, mountains, and forests in autumn colors. I saw a great number of Red-tailed Hawks on the way up perched on trees along the roadside. I had always thought that hawks chased, caught and eat other birds, which they do, but I learned that the red-tail’s primary food is rodents. They sit in high trees or electric poles over looking open places and drop on unsuspecting rodents. I was expecting high speed aerial chases and this is what this sort of hawk is about. (Nothing much to see here).
Anyhow I got some work done on my current painting. This is how it looks at the moment.
