Friday's Foto


Along the East coast of the United States Red-shouldered Hawks are usually associated with swamps where they prey on lizards, snakes, and amphibians. Generally rare around Brooklyn in the Winter, they have become more common over the last decade and are now frequently seen during the annual Christmas Bird Count. I spotted this individual perched on a street lamp over the parkway on-ramp next to the Canarsie Pier.
