Florida Hawk at resort

Supper time at the condo, but I think I got too close before he captured his supper.
We went to the park to see the Hawk and Osprey.
Didn't see either one, when we got back to our time share this Hawk was there.
I think it is a Florida Red Shoulder (which apparently look different than other Red Shoulder Hawks), but it could be the Broad Shoulder. A lady there told me it was a "Golden". Think she was thinking of eagles, which I do know it isn't an eagle.
This last photo was the second before it took flight.
Don't really care which type Hawk, he was just pretty to look at.
Oh, and if anybody is interested in the upper left corner is my Etsy site, you can see what I have been spending my time doing. As I list new purses they change there and you can keep an eye on my lastest listings. Right now I am knitting on a Red, White and Blue purse. Hopefully it will be listed in the next week.

Hi Leedra, What an amazing hawk. We have a few around our woods here but I never get to see them up close. Your photos are great! I'm on my way to look at your latest creations. Have a good night.

Sometimes the name of a bird is not nearly as important as just having a pleasing picture.These are excellent.
Blessings,Ruth

Those are great pics Leedra. He is definitely different looking from the ones I see around here.

Very cool hawk shots! What a surprise that was ;-)

Oh my gosh! What a stately bird, I love them. We saw one close up at a renaissance fair, it was hooded but how cool they are!

What interesting eyes....They seem to really bulge out from the hawk's head. Very nice pictures.

It's pretty funny that you went looking for him and he found you, lol. Great photos!

The roof line was a perfect place and color for this new friend. Such a stately pose.

Hi Leedra, what you have there is
a typical Cooper's Hawk, very nice
photos! The Red-shouldered Hawks
in Florida are paler than other
Red-shouldered Hawks. By the way,
that is a Green Heron in a previous
post. How is that butterfly door
coming along?
