Red-tailed Hawk At Novi Wetlands

Via Flickr:
While searching for a possible Sedge Wren at the Novi Wetlands, without success, a Red-tailed Hawk flew overhead to scan the field and marsh for a possible meal.

The Tree Swallows went on alert and took to the sky to warn other birds in the area of the predator in the sky. The other birds went deep into the cover of shrubs and trees while the swallows kept an eye on the the big Red-tailed buteo of the sky.
