Red-tailed Hawk at Cerro Ancón, a report by Daniel Hinckley

On November 3rd, 2011 I saw and photographed an immature Red-tailed Hawk at Cerro Ancón during the hawk count. A previous report from a few years ago was met with some skepticism so we hope this will lay any doubts to rest. We've also counted 7 Northern Harriers and 11 Merlins this year, all since October 1st. We'll be up there till November 18th, so please feel free to stop by for a visit. We're getting close to last year's record of 1.77 million raptors.
