Subject: [ia-bird] Red Shouldered Hawks- Polk County- Cottonwood Rec Area (Saylorville)
I birded the Cottonwood Rec Area pond around the time of the eclipse and
found one adult and two juvenile Red Shouldered Hawks hunting the edges of
the pond. They were very vocal and active until the eclipse started. Much
of the bird activity disappeared during the event but they became active
again once the eclipse ended as did the other species.
