This and a red-shouldered hawk were in the same tree, then one flew off to another but they kept calling to one another


In the middle of Washington D.C.

Thanks! I didn't look to closely at the far-away shots since I saw them together. I just assumed they were the same.

The hawk in the last two images is a different species. It appears to be a Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus.

You should move those two images into a separate spotting since it is of a different species. :-)
