Red -Shouldered Hawk


The Red-shouldered hawk is once again another of my Overstreet captures. I first spotted the hawk sitting on a fence post near Lake Kissimmee. Soon it flew a short distance towards me settling down on a fence post standing among the high reeds. The mid-afternoon lighting was all wrong but the situation improved when the hawk once again took to the air.

The Red Shoulder Hawks must be plentiful in Fla. You captured him in all of his beauty.

A great capture and wonderful bird, Salty. Have you spent much time learning to pan?
