Red Shouldered Hawk in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge

Repost, Read – Throwback Thursday

On our trip to the Stephen C. Foster State Park May 2021, I got the distinct impression that nature truly ruled here in the Okefenokee Swamp. Everywhere we turned there were animals doing the nature thing. Don’t mind us humans here!

. .

Walking to the trading post from our cabin what do we see? Sitting on the wooden fence to children’s swing area was a Red Shouldered Hawk. He really didn’t care about us walking by him. I’m sure he was aware of us but was keenly eyeing some rodent across the road.

And just like that he took flight! Up into the air, wings spread wide, talons curled back, gliding low near the road and swooping into a nearby tree.
