Harris’s Hawk

Harris’ Hawk

The Harris’s Hawk can be found in the southwestern United States,  through arid regions of Central America and South America. They are one of a few birds of prey known to hunt cooperatively.

This Harris’s Hawk was one of the birds that flew as part of the photography day presentation. It was fascinating to watch but my images weren’t great. I’ve included this one to show his beautiful brown and red colors.

I had much better in flight shots when I participated in this event in November, 2016.
