This pair of Red Shouldered Hawks live in our neighborhood. In fact, the nest is less one hundred yards from the house. The nest is very difficult to see and virtually impossible to photograph. However, there is a dead tree, not far away, that they seem to like early in the morning. Usually between 6:00 and 7:00 a.m., I can find them in this tree. I have to use a 500mm lens just to get this type of photo, and it's been cropped. I am nearly a half block away and they are nearly 75 feet in the air. One of these mornings, I'm going to get up very early and try to set up my gear closer to the site and be in place when they arrive. They are usually gone by 7:15 a.m. and typically don't return until the next morning.
