big birds in the foothills

got some cool bird pics yesterday with the bigma out in what I'll be calling, "the middle of nowhere" (it's a secret)... to see the bird gallery, click here.

first a turkey vulture...

Then a hawk. I believe this is a red shouldered hawk, but I'm not sure... is there an ornithologist in the crowd? (edit: indeed an ornithologist (well at least a very knowledgeable individual, I don't know if she has a degree in birds) has spoken up to tell me that this is a Red-Tailed Hawk - Thanks Traci. see her comment here.)
