Red-shouldered Hawk – 4/9/18

Observer: Deb Radovsky

Observation Date: 4/9/18

Observation Time: evening

Observation Location: Cottage and Ames Streets

Common Name: Red-shouldered Hawk

Scientific Name: Buteo lineatus

Comments: Although the American Crow often mobs the Red-shouldered Hawk, sometimes the relationship is not so one-sided. They may chase each other and try to steal food from each other. They may also both attack a Great Horned Owl and join forces to chase the owl out of the hawk’s territory.
