Description

This pair of Red-shouldered Hawks was spotted in my neighborhood numerous times during the Great Backyard Bird Count. They spent a week with me last year also, working on a nest site in a nearby tree, but they ultimately chose another site for laying. Waiting to see if they stick around this year. Being in the city, I normally only see Cooper’s Hawks. This is a special treat.
