Around 4:00, immediately after arriving, I spotted a RSHA on the right side of the wide, main path. I was happy to get around 10 minutes of good looks at the bird, following it to a few perches and managing several photos.

If anyone has information about Red-shouldered Hawks nesting at Woodside I’d be interested to hear about it. I think there was some discussion of the possibility of a hybrid pairing with a Red-tailed, although I think this has been discounted. Thanks in advance, on or off list, for any info!

Last year there was an active nest on the edge of the parking lot over looking the Woodside Juvenile
Rehab Ctr. If you were to turn left into the parking lot the nest would have been (may still be visible)
on the left, looking back towards Fort Ethan Allen. The nest was in the crotch of a tree--quite high, maybe
I obsereved two adults near the nest and one adult in the nest for an extended period of time.
the nest was not successful. I never saw young.
