Description

I was on my way home from a walkabout shoot and this hawk flew right in front of me and landed on top of the fence. Had to swing up my camera and focus quickly and shoot before it flew off again with prey in its claw.

Description from Wikipedia

The Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) is a medium-sized hawk. Its breeding range spans eastern North America and along the coast of California and northern to northeastern-central Mexico. Red-shouldered Hawks are permanent residents throughout most of their range, though northern birds do migrate, mostly to central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation.
