Artist's Description

Taken in Marana, Arizona using a Canon PS SX10IS today on my way to work. Saw him alone sitting in the tree that my babies grew up. So of course, I pulled over and just watched him. he had no worries that I was there, in fact I would say he was “bored”….lol


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
