A silhouette, unfortunately, but I hardly ever get to show pictures of snakes. I'm not sure if this counts, but it still seemed worth posting. This Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) had just flown up to the wire after catching this snake in a grassland on Bodega Head.
I was hoping to read about what types of snakes Red-shouldered Hawks have been known to catch, but I couldn't find much information about that (at least quickly). However, if you do a Google Image search, you'll find some amazing pictures of Red-shouldered Hawks with different species of snakes. I'm not certain which species of snake is in the photograph above, but the most likely is a garter snake (based on their abundance on Bodega Head).
