Almost Kind of Day

Danville, VA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Almost got a photo of the hawk! He was really large as I saw it in flight as well flying low. I heard a loud noise and it was like the hawk broke out of the woods or the creek or whatever. It flew to a tree for a moment got a great close-up of wings and tail feathers but don't think I got its head. Luckily, I was able to keep contact with it as it flew to another part of the woods and landed in this tree. This time his head was behind the limbs. From here he flew over across the woods and out of sight. So an almost kind of day.

Almost a great shot of this red-shouldered hawk. There are days when I wish I could nip the limbs out of the way. Good luck catching him on another day. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know - I was hoping someone would tell me. He is a big guy - looked brown when in flight. May be the same one the pileated woodpeckers battled last year. Was in the same woods at first and then over in another woods where they continued their battle last year. Plus I have found a baby hawk in that same area quite a few years ago so think perhaps they nest in the area of woods in this photo.

Still a neat capture!
Do you think this is a Red-shouldered Hawk?
I think it might be.
