On Tuesday, 3 Red-shouldered Hawks put on a great display for people attending a Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner at one of the local churches in Winfield. Apparently, the three were having a territorial dispute right over the church with much screaming at each other. Normally, people pay no attention to such things but these birds were so vocal that people were looking up to see what the fuss was all about. There were great aerial displays and they eventually all headed south over the city. This populations of this hawk have expanded over the state in the past few years. Normally a woodland bird, they have been found as far SW as Elkhart, Morton Co. with populations building in-between.
