Red-shoulder Hawk

Santa Rosa Ecological Reserve  in Wildomar, Calif

We stopped to adjust our bags, Kevin & I looked up and this hawk was sitting in a tree stalking a small animal.


Fun Trivia:

  • Red-shouldered Hawks often feed on aquatic and semi-aquatic animals, including small fishes and frogs.
  • Red-shouldered Hawks are part of the family Accipitridae, which includes 224 species of hawks, eagles, vultures, harriers, and kites.

 Happy Birding!
