Fine Feathered Friends, February 17, 2016

ABC Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday
F is for our Fine Feathered Friends - the Birds
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 27, 2016

I think this is a juvenile Red-Shouldered Hawk.
After it showed off its beautifully patterned back feathers...

It turned around so I could admire its front!

Hawks belong to the Accipitridae Family: Hawks and Eagles. All are predators, with hooked bills and sharply pointed talons. There are 240 species worldwide.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
