Last week, I took my son to the Loxahatchee Wildlife Preserve.  I hadn’t been in next to forever and I wanted to drop in while we were in the area.  Out on our hike, we came across this Red Shoulder Hawk perched on the top of a small tree.  I thought for sure by the time we got “too close for comfort” that the bird would fly away.  We continued to approach while he continued to mind his own business.  We got within a few yards of the tree as we walked along the path and he just sat, preening himself and watching his surroundings.  This brave bird, as well as many of the other animals we encountered that day, didn’t seem to care that we were there at all.  His acceptance of us allowed me to get close enough to make him my pic of the week.
