I was thrilled to see this new addition at the raptor free flight at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum
. I can only assume due to her being new that she wasn’t out very long. I didn’t get as many shots as I would have liked but I feel great about getting the
few I did.

Found in the lower Rio Grande valley of Texas and in southeastern Arizona in riparian Forests, especially with cottonwoods and sycamores, and nearby open areas. It hunts from a low perch for insects and small vertebrates.

Juveniles differ from juvenile Broad-winged hawk in a longer tail, white rump band, and strong face pattern ( a bolder supercilium and dark eye line).

VOICE a drawn-out, high-pitched, descending wheeeeeeee; similar in quality to Red-shoulder Hawk, but call single, not repeated.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    nice work Kimberly… beautiful hawk isn’t it

  • Indeed it is. Though I do love the ASDM and its free flight, I will admit that it was nice to see something completely different. Thank you. You know, one of these days we are going to run into each other….lol
