Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.
I spotted this hawk in a tree on the way to work. I thought it was a Red Tailed Hawk but it had a strange look when I looked at the picture. There was no Red Tail. We have a lot of Red Tailed Hawks in the area. During a conversation with a friend they said that there were Red Shouldered Hawks in her area. The light bulbs went off in my head and I took another look at the picture when I got home. I checked the Internet for Red Shouldered Hawks.
So, I present you with this Red Shouldered Hawk as my Camera Critter of the day. He disappeared into the woods after one picture but I had seized this moment to snap the picture.
This is one beautiful bird. I'm so glad I can share it with you.
