It's always a treat to see a Red-shouldered Hawk. Mark Simkins recently photographed a young one near Manchester sitting on a fence post.
Robert also photographed this forest hawk on a rainy day and the bird doesn't look pleased!
These hawks have a distinctive call. You can hear it at this link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-shouldered_Hawk/sounds
Here is what an adult looks like, photo taken by Jim Garlock. No more brown head!
Thanks to Mark, Robert, and Jim for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
