Artist's Description

Harris’s Hawk

Tucson, Arizona using a Canon Powershot SX40HS

This unusual species of deserts,brushy savannah, and arid woodlands is closely related to buteos and Common Black-Hawk. Unlike other American raptors, they breed year round.

Often forming polyandrous groups (2 males,1 female). Known also to form communal groups of 4-5 members. The young from previous broods will take care of the nest as well as defend it when needed. Hunting collectively for larger rodents such as hares & gophers.

Once called the Bay-winged Hawk, it has distinctive chestnut, black and white feathers that make it a favorite among falconers.

VOICE A strange, grating, nasal eeehhhhhhhh similar to a caracara
