Red-tailed Hawk and Starlings

One of the pleasures of birding in eastern Oregon (where I spent some time last weekend) is the peace and quiet, and relative lack of traffic on the roads. Actually, in the open country, when you are surrounded by thousands of acres of wheat stubble, there is also a relative lack of birds. But in the valleys the cattle ranches seem to attract many birds, such at this Red-tailed Hawk watching for a careless mouse. The Starlings sharing his tree appeared to be doing just as well as their city cousins.
