Week 9- Conference House Park, Staten Island

On April 14, 2023 at 10:57 am, I visited Conference House Park on Staten Island. On this day, the weather was 79 degrees fahrenheit with a clear sky and it was very sunny. This picture was taken around an area where there were many trees. Red-shouldered hawks (Buteo lineatus) are a species of bird of prey that belong to the family Accipitridae. They are medium-sized hawks and are known for their striking appearance, with distinct coloration on their wings and shoulders. In this picture, it is visible that this hawk is carrying sticks from a tree. They build large stick nests high in trees, and females lay 2-4 eggs per clutch. They are typically monogamous and form long-term pairs, often returning to the same nesting site each year. Red-shouldered hawks play an important role in controlling populations of rodents and other small animals, and they are considered beneficial to ecosystems.
