Red-tailed Hawks Over Banner Marsh

After leaving Emiquon, we headed back to Peoria. As we neared Bells Landing at Banner Marsh we saw two Red-tailed Hawks soaring together over the marsh. I turned onto Bells Landing road and stopped to take a few photos before they moved on. One had a very pale belly band and a light head, the other had a darker belly band and a very dark head. They were definitely together as they soared over the river bluffs. Later we saw these same two hawks soaring over Peoria as they headed up the Illinois River.
