Beautiful - and common!  I am amazed at the increase in all CT habitats, over recent years, of this remarkable "swamp hawk".   In the old days, a hawk teed up along a winter road, was always a 'Tail.

Now, you have to take a second look.

I just had a pair of "'Shoulders" in courtship flight today, over route 69 in Woodbridge.

3/12 - I was a bit surprised to see a beautiful full adult Red-shouldered
Hawk gliding over the field behind Trinity Church in downtown Newtown last
Thursday afternoon.  Perches for a few momenta in a tree then glided
further from sight.  Man, they are beautiful birds!
