I don't know why nobody is posting anything about the RTH, there were so many birders there taking pics.
By the time I got to the park, I saw a large bird the size of RTH flying away, and I also got a really bad pic of a peregrine falcon. Really hate myself, because the dial was moved accidentally, could have got a great overhead shot. The RTH is really obliging.

Many bird photographers on a relatively mild, sunny, calm day is a situation that comes as no surprise.The dearth of posted photos also comes as no surprise. I doubt whether any of the bird photographers that were present today are on this site. If they are, then in all probability they are not interested in sharing their captures, or feel that their images are not worth reporting. Who really knows what lurks in the minds of birders? Thankfully we have you and your pics. I have not seen a hawk in ages. It is so dead around here that even the House sparrows have gone on hiatus.

The park has indeed become very popular with photogs. I dropped by there after 5 PM to take a stroll and also in case something exciting shows. Well I eventually found Ally's Red-tailed Hawk sitting on the same sign, a very patient bird indeed. The photo was taken at 5:55 PM and with 8000 ISO.

I went there again. Very cold and windy, so he has less followers

You should sell your pic to the park. His talons are pointing to the message.
