Red-shouldered Hawk

Jan 27, 2010 | Birding

Early morning, January 1st, 2010.  A neighbor calls, says “get up and bring your camera… there’s a big hawk in my yard”.  I did catch a glimpse in the binocs of what I assumed was a red-shouldered hawk, but he didn’t stick around long enough for a picture.

Monday evening, as we pulled back into the driveway from our trip up north, the same bird was sitting in a tree next to our garage.  This time he waited for me to get out my camera and edge a bit closer.  The only other RSHA I’ve seen before was a Raptor Center release. Fun way to start the year.
