Our mouse and rodent catcher made an appearance on Monday afternoon just after the snow had finished up for the day. The bright afternoon sunshine came out and must have brought out both the hunter and his prey? Normally our previous Hawks will sit back on the fence or spend time circling looking for varmints. This guy came close enough for me to pull out my DSLR and snap off a few “portraits” before he flew away.
I never realized the Red Shouldered Hawks or his offspring nesting in our wooded area were banded. Hmm? (a couple more photos below)
