The red-shouldered is a medium sized hawk. Its breeding range spans from Eastern North America to the coast of California and North Eastern Central Mexico. It is a permanent resident throughout most of its range, though northern birds do migrate mostly to Central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation unfortunately.
Red-shouldered hawks search for prey while perched on a treetop or soaring over woodlands. When they sight prey, they kill it by dropping directly onto it from the air. When there is open air they sometimes fly high and then drop low to surprise and catch their prey.
Is it possible to post larger images please ? The pictures my son who is 9 years old takes look really nice when they are not cropped since they are 50+ Megapixels in full frame, thank you and have a nice day!
I don’t crop it at all.
Nice to hear from you and thank you for the quick response we appreciate it.
We were wondering after we submit the image and then click the image why it does not open in full screen mode 16×9 high-res as we submit it? Our images are minimum from 24 to 50 Megapixels.( Full Frame Camera – Sony A7 IVR )
Please let me know where I can e-mail you the images directly so you can see what we are saying.
Thank you and have a wonderful day!
