Hawk Flips the Bird
I can understand that this young red-shouldered hawk was very unhappy about getting his photograph taken by Florida birder Betsy Franz. However, I think it was totally inappropriate of the bird to flip the bird. That's just not right.
According to Betsy, this bird, a juvenile red-shouldered hawk, likely came from a large nest near her backyard. Betsy is the author of Wildlife Habitat Journal: Restoring and Exploring Wildlife Habitat in Your Own Backyard. To see more of Betsy's images visit her photo website.
