    An adult Redtail Hawk. He only allowed for 2 quick shots before he took off and I didn't get the chance to move over to get the branch out of the way. I spotted him while walking out to a bridge carrying my tripod to take pictures of the eagles who recently rebuilt their nest. The eagles old nest and tree blew down in a wind storm last year. I was glad to see they rebuilt however they weren't home today.

    Its crop -- a secondary food storage sac. Common in birds with irregular feeding opportunities, like raptors.
