The Red Shoulder Hawk at Neighborhood – Part 2 - Nature 71



Image 1- The same red shoulder hawk

Based on GoogleID, it was red shoulder hawk, a medium size hawk and found in the woodland area.

Sadly the frequency of these majestic birds of prey soaring above us on thermals high in the sky is not the almost daily occurrence that we used to see long time ago, about 30 years ago.

We so loved observing the magnificent creatures that live wild in our surrounding habitat. Red tailed hawks, white egrets, blue herons and numerous songbirds and other birds filled our skies and trees with life and song.

It’s so rare these days to observe wild birds in their natural habitats. Very sad fact.
