A Red-Shouldered Hawk on WW*

This photo comes from Mariann Wizard, who says, “A gorgeous red-shouldered hawk photographed on the ground at Canton in late October — he did not appear to be feeding, but just strolling around; I believe I could have gotten closer had my cousin not let her dog out just then. The dog was intent upon her own business and the hawk was unconcerned by her, but may have sensed my approach and just lazily lifted off and took to the trees. This bird must have a four-foot wing span; my jaw dropped and I didn’t quite get the money shot, but look at that color! Red as a robin’s breast!”

* Note: WW = Wildlife Wednesday
