Setting Up Shop


 The red-shouldered hawk arrives to set up territory 
in east central Minnesota around the first of March. 
Likely to be found in forested areas near wetlands,
this hawk is fairly common.

 

 Red-shouldered hawks catch a fair amount of their dinners
 near the wetlands, especially snakes.
They will start nest-building by the middle of April.
