The Latest Pic of Laura

Craig Schriever took this shot of everyone's favorite Red-shouldered Hawk, Laura, in the Celery Farm on Monday. Laura022812b-1 

How do we know it's Laura?

By the metal band on the right leg (see enlargement at right).

In case you had not heard, we had reports over the weekend that Laura and her mate were seen in the Farm on Sunday trying to start a family. 

Another (similar) shot to the above follows, for folks like me who just love looking at this gorgeous and endangered hawk.

(Thanks, Craig!)
