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.
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.
