Observer: Andrea & Herb Daroff
Observation Date: 5/15/08
Observation Time: 11:00 a.m.
Observation Location: Pilgrim Drive
Common Name: Red-shouldered hawk
Scientific Name: Buteo lineatus
Comments: This young hawk settled in a branch not more than 20 feet from our deck. I was able to get a number of shots and since he moved around a bit before flying away, I was able to shoot from different angles. We have seen him again in the yard but never again has he perched so conveniently, so cooperatively or so close.
