One very fine morning last winter, I saw a Red-shouldered Hawk hiding in plain sight. Since a Raptor does not like eye contact, I studied the “hidden” bird while looking past it. Or at least seeming to look past it. This is a trick I use while studying raptors. And, while ignoring the bird, I managed to sneak in a few unhurried camera shots, one of which is printed on this photo greeting card.
I must admit, I’ve watched this Red-shouldered Hawk for a few months, now, and it is my belief we have an understanding. I will do my best to ignore the wild thing. And, it will try to tolerate my presence – at least for a brief while. I can live with that.
The next time you take a winter walk on the Bayshore trail behind the Mall, I hope you go home and say, “I saw a Hawk Hiding in Plain Sight.” Trust me. If it is nearby, the Red-shouldered Hawk will not be hard to find.
