|Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus)|
This morning I was walking towards my building when I heard an unusual bird calling out, echoing off the buildings around me. I wondered if it was a hawk, but it sounded a bit more melodious than most hawks I've heard (which aren't that many, really). I looked up and finally saw it in the Deodar tree on the east side of the parking lot. It was a Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus), quite likely the one I've photographed once or twice before. It looked like it was greeting the sunrise, much as I was.
It was a nice moment in the quiet morning before things got crowded and hectic.
