Photographer's Note

Here the common red shouldered hawk takes a break on a power pole. These birds of prey can be very aggressive during hatching season. The mother is over protective during this time over her wee ones. I have a co-worker who had to wear a bicicle helmut to check the mail daily after an attack. A hawk had split her scalp open. They can be found throughout the eastern United States as well as on the westcoast and southern Canada.
