A Red-shouldered Hawk, as photographed by John Batchelder

John Batchelder photographed this Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus, perched on a roof on The Sea Ranch.

You can find this Hawk in California and in the East. They eat small mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and crayfish. I bet this Hawk is keeping an eagle eye out (or a hawk eye out) for a nice fat rodent.

Thanks to John for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see a photo of a seemingly headless Red-shouldered Hawk, here's the link:
