Two-fer Tuesday

I was driving along a back street on a recent Saturday morning when I happened to glance at a nearby light pole and spotted these two hanging out. Quickly pulling into the parking lot, I slowly walked very close to the pole to take some shots with my ever-present phone. The bird on the left was calling insistently and there was a third bird on the next post over, but facing the other way and not interacting with these two at all. What a great way to start the day!

I tried to look them up online but had no luck finding any hawks that matched how these two looked. (I have the same problem with flowers all too often.) So if any of you can identify them, you’ll make my Tuesday even better.

    Young ospreys popped into my mind at first sight, Janet, though that’s because I’ve been watching some on live streaming in the UK. Here, the young leave the nest and migrate quite independently from the parents.Just a long shot!

    Great capture. Sorry, but I can’t help you ID them.

    Cool photo, but I am not a bird person. Hope you find the answer you’re looking for.

    Looks like Red Shouldered Hawks to me. We had them everywhere in Florida.

    Now that’s a much nicer find than usual in a parking lot!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
