Red-shouldered Hawk, Stinson Beach

We heard this hawk calling all afternoon, a high repeated kee-ah. It flew off around the hills, later coming back to a dead tree stump in the parking lot. The underside of the wings was reddish with white near the tips; from above it showed clear red shoulders and a white wing bar. The call confirmed the identification; matched the recording we have from Cornell exactly.
