Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


Taken at Silverbell lake in Tucson,Az

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

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.

    great focus… beautiful bird, beautiful capture Kimberly

  • It was in up in a tree and to be that close to them in the wild was a real treat. It was by itself, and just chillin out watching the people fishing. I felt blessed, thank you!☺
