Red-shouldered Hawk

February 18, 2024

The "runway model" hawk, the Red-shouldered Hawk, posed for me in good frontal light and minimal focus trashing branches. It sat intelligently facing the warming sun with its back protected from the wind by the forest. How smart? Any small mammal running across the field it faced is an easy target for this patient hawk.
