Mating Hawks

Mating Red-shouldered Hawks – P1
Effie Yeaw Nature Center, Sacramento, CA; MAR 2021

I had an interesting encounter with a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks. As I was walking a trail, I heard a Red-shouldered hawk call. I found it on a low branch about 50 yards away. I set up to photograph the bird when I heard another call and a second one arrived. I got their picture and then continued as they mated right in front of me. This was truly a wonderful experience. I thanked them before I left.
