I glanced out the window over the computer this afternoon and much to my surprise I saw a hawk sitting out there on a wire.

My immediate thought was Red-shouldered Hawk, and I confirmed later that by checking bird books and an online bird group. I’ve seen Red-shouldered Hawks in our area often during the past couple of years.

After sitting there for several minutes, the hawk flew off.
