Whiting Woods Rd.
had not seen this hawk in awhile; it was patient with me for awhile taking pictures
This hawk has been around our neighborhood for the last 2 years. There is a nest in our neighbors tree and 2 little ones were born last year.
Brief description of what you observed
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.
