Beautiful bird!  Red-tailed Hawk. The EJC Arboretum has a live nesting pair. We think one of our hawks was seriously injured. We had a report of a hawk disabled on the ground, Virginia Wildlife Center volunteers tried to find but couldn't. If anyone has a sighting, call the office (540) 568-3194, stay with the downed bird, until help arrives! We don't want our hawk to die. We hope it can be helped.

Red-winged Blackbird riding on the back of a Red-tailed Hawk...this is referred to as 'bird surfing'.  Certain 'bold (mostly corvids and some icterids), birds will do this to chase raptors out of their territory and away from their nests.
