Guess who dropped in for a visit?

This guy (or girl) swooped into a tree just as I was walking past! He (or she) sat there for a couple minutes, being perfectly chill while I stared and took pictures.

My friend Melissa happened to walk by just then, and I waved her over excitedly to get a look at this guy. She sent a photo to her mom, who runs a raptor rescue, and was able to identify it as a juvenile red-shouldered hawk.

He perched for a bit and then decided to glide off to another nearby tree. Unfortunately, Melissa and I had to go to class right about then, but it was a really neat visit!

It's a good thing Timmy decided to stay home today...
