Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife


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.

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


  2. they’re such beauties.

  3. The hawks are a cool sight to see! wonderful series. Have a happy day!

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

    • Hi Montucky, Good thing you have the hawks to keep those rodent at a good normal level – same here. Thanks for your always appreciated and really nice comments!
