Red shouldered hawk call

Red-shouldered hawks usually live in deciduous or mixed deciduous-conifer forests and swamps. They like to perch on dead trees to observe and hunt animals on the forest floor. You may be able to locate them by one of their common calls, “keeyuur, keeyuur”. They hunt mainly small mammals, no larger than a rabbit or squirrel. They will also eat snakes, toads, frogs, small birds, and large insects.

Red-shouldered hawks are solitary and territorial. They do not form flocks, even in the winter. Most populations of red-shouldered hawks do not migrate. They stay in the same area year-round.
