Maybe the bird wasn't looking and hit the chopper? Lovely hawk photo!

Look up,
Look down,
Look all around.
Look at my thumb...

Do you know what sort of hawk? Your usual selection of good shots! What is that dead bird, looks like a starling to me?

I've seen that hawk a number of times, hanging out on the light poles next to I-70. But he/she/it/hawk never lets me get close enough to get a shot that would help with identification.

I will guess Red-tailed hawk, based on behavior.

Red-tails are quite large, and have a broad tail feather span when flying. This one's tail seems narrower. Can't judge the size from the shot.

I though I was the only one who shot (photographed) dead birds. That hawk is bigger than any we see in the UK.

Poor sad little birdy.

Poor bird. I hope he had a good life.

Still, that shrouded rear rotor on the helicopter is pretty sweet. US Coast Guard flies the Dolphin chopper, and you always know when one of those is headed your way.

Cool flying things indeed!

That hawk is pining for the fjords.
