Red Shouldered Hawk


These guys are HUGE! I noticed him as he decided to perch on my empty nestbox! I was terrified he was hanging around looking for baby bird lunch boxes so I shooed him away…only to my neighbor’s yard though. He is a beautiful bird, just not one that I want to sit and watch the feeders. I did a wee bit of research and apparently, interesting fact, they tend to eat cold blooded animals during the summer to maintain their body temperature. Quite clever of nature isn’t it? I took a few shots, it was drizzling out and I didn’t want to have my camera out too much in the rain. A beaut isn’t he?
