Yucky but exciting!

Okay, if you don't want to see a hawk on deer carcass, then please look away from my page ASAP! If you don't mind, then look below to see my beautiful hawk. I'm just not sure what kind it is - a Broad-Winged? A little help from my birdy peanut gallery would be nice! :-)

Yucky, but all part of nature, and a good photo.

I don't have a clue about which type he might be...other than hungry hawk. You were in the right place at the right time!

Red Shoulder all right. I think I saw that very one in Corkscrew Audobon in Florida last February. He told me he was definitely thinking of beautiful Michigan for the summer. :)

Don't really know what kind of hawk it is, but it's a good photo, capturing nature at its best.

Great shot. The hawk seems to look right at you.

Kathy said...

Definitely a Red Shouldered Hawk!
My husband and I monitored a nest site for several years and have gotten to know them well!

You're right, they are beautiful with all of those black & white stripes down their back, reddish brown chest and of course...their hawk eyes boring down on you!

Great pic!

That's a good nature shot, but I'm not on the good side of the Atlantic to help you with the ID ;-)

It is a Red-shouldered Hawk. I have one nesting near my yard!

Pretty amazing how well the hawk blends into the background. You have to look twice to see it.

It does look like the pictures of red-shouldered hawks posted online, but I wonder if it's a younger one since it's coloring seems a bit spotty and light. Thanks for such great photos!
