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.
