We heard a loud thump this morning and when I searched around outside, I found a juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk lying on the roof. We often have song birds fly into the windows, and sometimes they will lie still for a long while, but eventually come to and fly away. I let the hawk lie, and though he slid down the roof a little, he did not fly away. Eventually I retrieved him from the roof and after a couple of photos (the others are somewhat macabre) buried the poor fellow in our pet cemetery.
