Description

Subfreezing temperature at the Mass Audubon’s Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary today. This immature Red-shouldered Hawk was apparently trying to enjoy some sun, or maybe scanning the lawn for a possible prey, when a crow came right at it emitting a loud and angry sound. The hawk barely avoided its attacker and came to rest on a tree in front of me.
