Artist's Description


I watched this family of Harris’s Hawk for about 30 minutes. This raptor jumped down to the branch, snapped it off and this image captures her as she flew away with it along side a family member. it was amazing to watch! Didn’t know they broke off branches!

Harris’s Hawk
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
