This is a regular visitor to the local McDonalds. It was on the ground eating the remains of the meat in a discarded sandwich in the parking lot with several large, black crows around, cawing angrily, but . . . not getting too close. The crows would hop closer and the hawk would turn it’s head to look at them and they’d quickly back up. It was fascinating to watch. Once finished with the meat in the sandwich it flew to the top of this post where I finally thought to snap a pic or two. As best as I can tell on-line, it’s a Red Shouldered Hawk. -Shuey
