Red-Shouldered Hawk

I don’t think anyone is going to tell this guy to move, but for those of us who travel on four wheels, parking near the beach can be a challenge.  It’s best to come stay at Weekapaug Inn, where parking is easy and access to a beautiful private beach is ensured.

P.S.  This rather defiant looking fellow is a Red-Shouldered Hawk, which is part of the Buteo species.  Buteos are characterized by wedge-shaped tails and circling flight patterns and include other hawks such as the Red Tail and Broad Winged.  Red Shoulders typically feed on small mammals, reptiles and, at times, smaller birds.
