Immature Red-tailed Hawk

We drove down to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division in Oceanville, NJ to see how the refuge has survived our heavy handed Winter so far. When we got there we found what I think is an Immature Red-tailed Hawk in the trees along the Wildlife Drive. He attracted quite an audience as he moved from treetop to treetop along the way. He seemed to be posing for photos and was not bothered by the group watching him. Some closeup images are cropped into from my full adjusted master files.
