Red-shouldered Hawk

Buteo lineatus

Description:

This breaks my heart. The hawk photographed was found in my neighbor's yard and had been badly electrocuted. Animal control was called, and though they tried to rescue it, it was in too much pain and was euthanized later that day. I can only guess this is a powerline victim.

That would be a great addition to Birds of Texas mission. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1049...

It was a Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus. Shame.
