      Great catch! Does he have another bird in his claws?

      yes he does, it looks to be a downy woodpecker.

      Ahh. A shame for the woodpecker, but good for the hawk!

      and today there were 4 of these red shouldered hawks in the trees outside my office window

      Plenty of woodpeckers around, then? ;)

      mating season and lots of squirrels and other critters. I think the woodpecker was a target of opportunity, a fast food snack rather than a meal

      Makes sense. Were this my backyard, I'd be inclined to lure the squirrels with food, to help out the hawks. :)

      trust me the squirrels are abundant in the area
