A beautiful autumnal woodland scene decorated with a carpet of rusty bracken ferns in Francis/King Regional Park, a 107-hectare park nestled in rural Saanich.

In autumn bracken fronds turn reddish-brown and die back to ground level, with new fronds (fiddleheads) in spring. Bracken ferns are one of the oldest ferns, with fossil records over 55 million years old!

Francis/King Regional park gets its name from the surnames of James Francis whose father purchased the property in the 1840s and his good friend Thomas (the Skipper) King. James Francis was a lover of nature, refusing to donate his land to the city of Victoria as well as declining monetary offers from others to log the land. Later on in his senior years, he was going to will his property to Thomas; however, Thomas convinced him that turning it over to the province for parkland was the best idea.( Source CRD.BC.ca)

Red-shouldered hawks, Buteo lineatus, are probably the most common raptor in the skies above Florida. They can be seen in and near swampy woods and even in the 'burbs throughout the state and throughout the year.

But despite their familiarity, they remain as magnificent a sight as if seeing one for the first time.

This is mostly a bird of eastern North America, with the greatest portion of its population within the United States. It is largely nonmigratory, and Florida has a year-round population of resident red-shouldereds. But there is also a small percentage that do move to the northern U.S. and southern Canada to breed each summer and retreat south to Florida and Mexico during winter. There's also a population of red-shouldered hawks that live along California's coast, south into the Baja Peninsula of Mexico.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, two of the five subspecies of red-shouldered hawk are found in Florida, with Lake Okeechobee generally being the geographic dividing line between the two. B. l . alleni is the subspecies found from the Panhandle to Lake Okeechobee; B. l . extremus is found from the lake to the Keys.

The biggest threat to red-shouldered hawks is loss of habitat.

Red-shouldered hawks are members of Accipitridae, which includes other hawks, eagles and kites.

I found this one in Osceola County, Florida.
