I just watch an adult red-shouldered hawk, feeding on nightcrawlers in the grass for about 5 minutes before it flew off.  It would alternate between perch feeding from a fence post or lower tree limb, and running around the yard like a chicken, scooping up nightcrawlers on the surface. The bird looked like it was in good health.  I’ve never seen that behavior before, but it was funny to watch.
