They're not the best shots, but I finally got the red-shouldered hawk on camera. This one lit near the tent, so I was able to get this pic before it took flight (usually it takes off before you can get the camera aimed), and one in flight, which is posted on the birds page.

A pair of barred owls (Strix varia) has been heard calling back and forth at various points around Gault recently, but sightings have been limited to glimpses. Hopefully we'll be able to get a photo...
