Red-Shouldered Hawk, South Carolina Swamp

I was sure to include ‘South Carolina’ in the title here. We have been discussing the difference between the coloration based on geographic location.

Here the red is more than obvious.

The same species in the woodlands and swamps of Florida have a much softer shading. Not just the red but also the browns across the back.

I assume it’s diet, usually is. Yet what could be different. The distance is not that great.
