Photographers Phil Rowntree and David Hauer separately photographed this big Red-tailed Hawk in October. See “Supervisor,” Oct. 8 2021, and “Banded Hunter,” Oct. 14 2021. The same bird, probably a female because of its size, came for a return visit recently. The plastic and metal bands around its legs make for a positive identification, just like the license plate on a car.
