Our resident Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a creature of habit. Early mornings and late afternoons I often sight this beautiful raptor perched on the same branch in more or less exactly the same location within a stately Oak.
Carol Duke is an artist and farmer who has worked with the land on a Western Massachusetts hillside for over thirty years. During this time her land has evolved into a diverse wildlife habitat. Carol features the flora and fauna that live and visit her farm on her website and blog http://caroldukeflowers.com As vital wildlife habitats are destroyed daily, Carol hopes to inspire others to garden for wildlife, while becoming activists for wild places the world over. Her nature photography has appeared in magazines, books and newspapers.
