This Red Shouldered Hawk was spotted along the shore of one of the larger rainfall retention ponds here.  This pond is next to a health club that is undergoing construction.  It had rained earlier in the day so there was a lot of water in this basin.  This is the same basin where I have spotted egrets and ducks so I was not totally surprised to see this hawk there.

This hawk had a meal that it was dining on.  I only rarely spot hawks eating.  There was a lot going on around this area so the bird did not stay there on the lawn very long.  I took these pictures on Saturday, March 30, 2014.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.

  1. Hawks are gorgeous –but I hate it when they want my little backyard birds for dinner….

    Maybe Spring is finally coming to our area this week… I hope so since it has been a LONG winter and a crazy one!!!!

  4. They are fascinating birds, and I see a lot of them here doing a great job of keeping the rodent population in check!
