  1. Wow, please do share how you managed to capture it so up close? Posted 5 years ago
    1. This particular hawk was unafraid of me. I had been in that spot for over 2 hours so I simply moved closer a little at a tine. As you see I still had to shoot through underbrush. Posted 5 years ago

The Red-shouldered Hawk is a medium-sized hawk. Its breeding range spans eastern North America and along the coast of California and northern to northeastern-central Mexico. Red-shouldered Hawks are permanent residents throughout most of their range, though northern birds do migrate, mostly to central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation.
