Hawk

Amy and I went up to Rutherfordton, NC to visit her parents this afternoon.  Here is a quick shot of a Hawk in a tree. 




I'll post some more photos from our trip tomorrow

What is that? Red-shouldered hawk? Broad-winged? Not big on specific bird ID.

I believe it is a Red-Shouldered Hawk, but I am not 100% sure

My pal Kerry Provance says that it's a Broad winged hawk, probably. The Broad-winged and Red-shouldered are very similar in appearance, but the Broad-winged does better in dense forest habitat. (According to Kerry, to whom I defer on all bird-related facts.)
