A Day in the Life of …

[  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:
