Birds - Red-shouldered Hawk
Class:Aves Order:Falconiformes Family:Accipitridae


Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus. Reddish at tops of shoulders and through the underside of body. White rounded bars across wings and the tail feathers that are visible when they are in flight. Medium sized, smaller than the Red-tailed Hawk and uses its wings differently in flight. Photographed this Hawk in Southern Missouri in May. It was resting after it had been chased by a pair of Swallows.
