Stare-down Between The 2 Noisiest Hawks


Red-shouldered Hawks are the noisiest hawks I have ever heard. Their calls might shatter glass if they were on a loudspeaker! 
Kee-yer! Kee-yer! Kee-yer! over and over again along with other screechy calls. Despite their shrill voices I like that we have plenty of them around to help keep the rodent population under control. They're also a very distinct looking with their football-shaped figure and rusty red chest. I caught this pair in a stare-down the other day. Maybe an argument over whose responsibility it is to make the nest?

Hahah! Could be!

Nice shot of them staring at each other.
