Ornate Red-shouldered Hawk

Red-shouldered Hawk, Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands, Viera Florida

This Red-shouldered Hawk, with its head feathers lifted by a contrary wind, makes me think of the Ornate Hawk Eagle of Central and South America. It has the same crest, but its is natural, and not an artifact of the I wind. I have to think that if the Red-shouldered Hawk had its choice, it might wear this crest all the time. 🙂 I love this pose, with the legs and talons, the weathered wood, and the proud bird.
