Red-shouldered Hawk [Franklin]

Hi all

A Red-shouldered Hawk was warming up in the sun about 8AM along Vermont 105 in Sheldon this morning. As I approached on my drive I spotted the small raptor perched on telephone line, went by it saying “who is that?” knowing it wasn’t a Red-tailed Hawk. Did a quick u-turn, drove by the raptor and parked at end of nearby residential driveway, jumped out of car, snapped three photos … Red-shouldered Hawk! … whipped another u-turn and continued on my way smiling.

Along I-89 between Saint Albans and Burlington five perched Red-tailed Hawk and my “turkey friends” at exit 17 southbound–looked like fourteen birds with two males “strutting their stuff”. 😉
