A few weeks ago I heard a hawk calling repeatedly outside my window. So I went out to investigate and found that we had a pair of Red Shouldered hawks building a nest in my backyard! I was quite excited to see this and wanted to share a couple pictures that I've taken in the last week or so. I'm pretty sure that I'll have more opportunities to photograph these birds so there will be more posts and pictures in the future.
Here is the female in front of her nest:
Here is the pair mating:
