Artist's Description

A Swainson’s Hawk (Buteo Swainson) flares his wings and stretches out his talons as he prepares to land on a fencepost.

Captured near Mountainview in rural southern Alberta, Canada; just east of Waterton National Park.

Taken with a Canon Rebel XSi using a 70-300mm lens @ 300mm, f/16.0, 1/2000 sec., ISO 1600.

The Swainson’s Hawk is a dark-breasted western buteo hawk; especially common on the prairies of western Canada and the United States. This particular specimen is what is known as a ‘dark morph’ colour variation with darker brown except for a light patch under the tail. Dark Morph variants are the rarer birds, accounting for only about 10% of the population.
