Red-shouldered Hawk

There is a little park near our condo in Florida. I found this immature Red-shouldered Hawk had taken up residence for a few weeks there. It would frequent the tops of the light fixtures and scan the grass for a meal.

It would spy something in the grass and swoop down. I took this shot because it shows the field marks; the faint rusty patch on the shoulder and the beige patch on the outer primary feathers.

Oh, that is why they call them “Ring-necked Ducks”

It is just one of those things. There are so many other names you could call this duck. Why “Ring-necked”?
