This afternoon, 2 (a pair, I assume) of Red-shouldered Hawks displayed right outside my front door. One was sitting on the electric wires; the other (male, I assume) was flying nearby. It gained altitude, folded its wings tight to its body, and dive-bombed the putative female. I thought that this could be rivals in conflict, but then both flew around above the house, calling. This species nests nearby every year, so courtship seems very likely.
