Red Shouldered Hawk (near work)

I've been spotting this Red Shouldered Hawk, and possibly a second one too.

This was shot at one of th adjacent buildings to where I work, and the hawk started on a light pole. He them flew in, and joined a couple of crows that were also interested in the dumpster. The crows left within a couple of minutes.

I should have had my ISO a little higher, maybe at 400. My lense isn't that fast, just f/4.5-5.6. Still it was at ISO 250, f/8 and 1/1000th.

I've now seen this guy (assuming it is just the same one, and not the second one I've only spotted once) about 7 times now in a month and a half or so. I wonder if I was looking for him in the past months if I would have noticed him. As with so much...
