Red-shouldered Mascot

This hawk hung around in a tree outside my office building, we thought he seemed lonely and after he attacked a coworker who was walking out to her car, maybe pretty cranky about it. But no, he was guarding his territory as they was a nest around the other side of the building! We made him our company mascot. Soon he brought his fledglings around to his favorite tree to learn how to hunt, and we were thrilled to watch them grow up!
