I can go weeks without seeing a single Red-shouldered Hawk. You can always hear hm in the woods and swamps, but they can hide better than most.
This winter they seem to be everywhere.
They are a common raptor all along the eastern US. There are places in Florida that only have this species of hawk.
Here the bird was sitting off the side of a swamp while another flew around and called. This one didn’t seem interested in the other hawk at all.
