One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Red Shouldered Hawk

Finding myself at loose ends on Thursday, the respite between storms gave me a brief window so I ventured out.  I found this red shouldered hawk perched on a wire near Sheridan intently gazing for prey.  Although this photograph is only a shot of a perching bird, I was happy to see it healthy and free.  The last time I knowingly encountered a red shouldered hawk was a couple of years ago when I was still doing hawk rescues.  That red shouldered hawk was severely injured with a bleeding and broken wing.  Sadly, that bird had to be euthanized.
