A few weeks ago, before our grounds became snow covered for the winter, a guest noticed a large bird in the wooded area outside the breakfast room window. Brook Farm Inn is located in the heart of the Berkshires, so more than 30 species of birds common to Massachusetts have been sighted on our property. The birds frequently dine along with the guests, who can view the feeder and birdbath from the dining room window. I’ve posted pictures before, and many are on our Facebook album. This is the first time I was able to photograph a raptor here in the wild. After comparing photos from our numerous bird guides, we determined that this big guy was a Red Tailed Hawk. If you look closely you can see he is having squirrel for breakfast. (Don’t worry. The inn’s breakfast buffet menu is more palatable for humans.) Enjoy the pics.
