Everglades Nature

Red Shouldered Hawk

The red-shouldered hawk is a common sight in the Everglades area. During the spring and summer months you can often find them by observing the behavior of other birds. When predators are present, mockingbirds, cardinals and starlings will often harass any hawks that enter their territory.

Unfortunately, some just may become the hawks dinner…like the starling that is this hawk’s dinner.
