Red-shouldered Hawk

Red-shouldered Hawk Day, Sighting 1

On my walk around Magnolia Plantation and Gardens yesterday I came upon three separate Red-shouldered Hawks just waiting to be photographed. This first one was perched over a small pond, looking like he’d just been for a swim.

He’s got what looks like duck weed stuck to his chest.

He was sitting with his tail somewhat fanned out, showing of the stripe on the underside.

Some preening and fluffing up made him look more bedraggled, at least temporarily.
