Red-Shouldered Hawk in Golden Morning Light

Looked out over the Delware River to the perch tree about 8:30 this morning and saw this golden glow on a Red-Shouldered Hawk that was surveying the Big Eddy landscape. Never cease to be amazed and inspired by my surroundings… by nature!

This gorgeous bird of prey was glowing in the morning sun on the popular eagle perch high above the Delaware River. Apparently surveying the Big Eddy for breakfast options. I am so blessed to have this daily view. Took the photos still in my cozy zebra robe and before first cup of coffee because I know too well that a photo opp like this can be gone in seconds.

Hope you enjoy this bit of my morning wildlife inspiration. And here’s the article where I learned a bit more about Red-Shouldered Hawks: http://www.conservewildlifenj.org/species/spotlight/redshouldered/

Two more photos – a bit blurry, but remember, no coffee, still in wakeup mode and the hawk is flying off the branch…
