Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus)

Very vocal predator. Diet: small mammals, lizards, snakes, and amphibians, occasionally birds

personal observation reveals they also dine on lubber grasshoppers and sphinx moth caterpillars


Shown on Florida Native Plant: LONGLEAF PINE TREE (Pinus palustris)

My take: Bird-napping, Murder and the Usual Suspects
