Red-tailed Hawk encounter

I just received the following e-mail from my friend Steve:

"Last weekend I was looking at one of the Ash-throateds with Phil [..]. We walked out of the Park together and nearly stepped on an imm RedTail which had just caught a squirrel. I actually hit him with my foot. He moved off a few feet. We walked off a bit. He went back to his prey. I took a few shots, two of which are on the web with the Ash-throated shots. It then took off with prey down the path.

Steve"
