Awesome Red-shoulder Hawk! We have seen a few from the platform of a distant hawkwatch but nothing as close as this guy today. He was posted atop one of the few remaining boats left to fend for themselves as the cold takes further grip on the Spruce Run boat launch. I would have liked to see him fly away and see the wing “windows” but he was looking pretty comfortable so we left him to it. Jeanette loves buteos when they are this visable, not so much when they are hundreds of feet over head. So, this was a nice moment in a pretty “bird-free” day.
