Photo of the Day: Red-shouldered Hawk

from Wildlife Promise

Red-shouldered hawk ruffling its feathers; Blackland Prairie Raptor Center in McKinney, TX

Knowing that hawks are able to rouse their feathers while keeping their head still, Tianne Strombeck captured this red-shouldered hawk in mid-shake, leaving the head in focus while the rest of the body is blurred.
