The resident pair of red-shouldered hawks, locals for many years (or the
male has been; females come and go), has disappeared for the moment,
following the settling down last month of a pair of rough-legged hawks in
 nearby fields.  The red-shouldered usually have taken a vacation somewhere
in December or January; I do not believe they migrate.  The black hawks
seem non-threatening -- different feeding strategies-- but the
red-shouldered residents may have moved away for the time-being.  Anyone
know any such history of these raptors?  Rob Evans   North Stonington
