I walked outside in my backyard yesterday and discovered not one, but a pair of Red-Shouldered Hawks visiting mine and my neighbor's back yard. The male was on our neighbor's trampoline eyeing what was probably a lizard. The beautiful female perched in one of our small trees near our fence so she could watch her mate hunt. They stuck around for about half an hour before heading off. This is my second sighting in one week in my backyard. Hopefully, they will continue to return.
