[ 2.6.16 | PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL ]
At LRP Publications we are blessed to have a pair of resident Red Shouldered Hawks nesting yearly nearby. They swoop past our office windows all day and often I find myself completely enthralled in hawk life. Last Saturday I decided to spend an hour or so, off the clock, with the couple and my camera. I was fortunate to catch a few snacks, flights, gathering of nesting material and even some hawk luv’n.
Meet our hawk couple:
The female is on the left still sporting her juvenile colors, male on the right.
Ok I just have to share the story here. He was so proud of that giant stick (Right). He struggled and struggled and finally landed with it. Then…
His surprised posture seemed to say “Oh crap! I dropped it” (left). Then he dove to get his prized stick.
