This is 2 photo’s of a Red-Shouldered Hawk who was circling over my head this past weekend. A pair has been here in my Hewitt (northern) NJ backyard since early spring. They are very vocal, active Hawks, and a joy to have among my wooded forest friends. I believe this is the same Hawk that Jo has in the pevious post.The light was not the best and I was only using a 300mm lens.Notice also how the eye is lighter in the 2nd pic, it is all about the light! I hope this helps make an accurate ID.
