Swainson's Hawk

Buteo swainsoni

Description:

On our way out to our usual birding haunts, this beautiful Swainy and its mate (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/470... ) were hanging out in the morning sunlight, being harassed by a kingbird who apparently did not like them in its territory! They didn't seem to be bothered!

Habitat:

Agricultural plains with pockets of old-growth trees.
