Resident hawk

There's nothing like adding a hawk to the backyard to keep things exciting at the bird feeder! This Red-shouldered Hawk (I think) set up camp on a low-lying branch and observed the goings-on. Eventually he made his move and pounced on something on the ground. Soon thereafter he flew off to reposition himself in a tree farther away. It's always exciting to see such a big bird, and to observe him hunting so close by is a treat.
