Red-shouldered Hawks


 

  A few miles north of Ukiah, this nest was set against the trunk of a black oak growing on a hillside. I built a blind of green sheets and camouflage nets out on the horizontal limb of another nearby oak, and from there was able to watch the hawks without being too obvious. Mostly the male hawk hunted and the mother stayed with the chick. He would bring in lizards or voles and she would tear them up and feed them to the chick bite by bite.
