Red-shouldered hawks

We've been hearing the Garden's red-shouldered hawks quite a bit;  they're feeding hungry nestlings, so are out and about foraging for food.

I was surprised, though, to look up from my computer a minute ago, to see one perched in the Gordonia out my office window! S/he didn't stay long, but swooped down toward the mixed hardwood forest behind the Carriage House, maybe having spotted a chipmunk or squirrel on the lawn.
