High Wire Act
While shooting murmurations of starlings as they swarmed around the power lines in the evening, I spotted this red-tailed hawk chasing, and being chased by, a smaller flock of birds. I love the drama of the moment, silhouetted against the abstract quality of the power lines. No bait was used. The red-tailed hawk is not listed on the IUCN Red List of any concern. This was shot at the high power lines just off Route 3, Chelsmford, Massachusetts, USA.
