I realized I'd been hearing loud vocalizing that reminded me of Red-shoulered Hawks but was a bit different. Then I spotted these two copulating. I tried to take a photo but I was just a little bit too late.

This immature/juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk flew right over me this morning. I kept this photo despite it being a bit out of focus because it shows the light crescents at the wingtips that are good field marks for this species.

This is one of two Couch's Kingbirds that were together on the trail this morning, also seen yesterday here. I have a recording of one of them vocalizing that I'll post to iNaturalist and eBird soon.

Taken during the Port Aransas Whooping Crane Festival while leading the Birds of Lamar Peninsula field trip.

One of the neat things about Lamar is that often you can find Whooping Cranes and Sandhill Cranes right next to each other. As a bonus, there's an Anhinga on the left.
