I was out for a hike this past weekend with my camera and was able to catch this hawk perched on some wires.  I'm pretty sure this is a red-tailed hawk.  As usual, one never has the right lens and I wish I had taken my 70-300mm along.  This was taken with the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED and was hand-held.  The picture was also heavily cropped.  I know it's not perfect technically, but it's not that often I can get reasonably close to a hawk.  He posed pretty well for me.
