Juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk

Juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk

This beautiful babe landed in our backyard just long enough to capture a decent shot. The brown coloring on his head gives away that fact that he is a juvenile (versus grey), plus the fact that he just looks like a little fella in the face. Notice all the different coloring and markings on his breast and wings. As an adult, his breast will be almost entirely red, and the wing marks will become much more defined. Red shouldered hawks can be found as far north as southern Canada with Wisconsin as a western border, stretching all the way to the Atlantic. Southern borders include Florida to Texas and span into Mexico. The are also found along the Pacific coast from northern Oregon to the Baja Peninsula – no surprise here as they love to fish. They also enjoy moist, mixed woodland habitats.
