I work in downtown Raleigh but I do have the occasional wildlife encounter despite the urban setting. Today I had a pretty cool one when I saw a Red Shoulder Hawk capture a gray squirrel. I was able to capture the hawk feeding on the squirrel after I retrieved my flip camera.

Dark bands on the tail makes me think this is a red shoulder hawk. In the next video there is some clear shots of the tail.

Pretty cool encounter and the hawk was pretty tolerant allowing me to stand and film him from about 15 ft or so.
