I have been trying for almost a year to get a shot of this red-shouldered hawk. It is one of a pair I often see flying around over the field and woods behind our house. I have gotten a distant shot, but finally last week I was able to get the shot I wanted.
It is a hawk of the woodlands, often heard before it is seen. The clear whistled calls of this hawk are conspicuous, especially in spring. Blue Jays often give a near-perfect imitation of this call.
