Big Ass Birds

The Harris Hawk is one of the largest hawks in North America….Up to 21″ tall and a wing span of 4 feet! They hunt in groups, and last week a group of three took a little R&R in Todd’s Backyard!  Long enough for a little photo show. Spectacular!

This guy was not hard to spot, easily meeting the 21″ standard! We didn’t see the others, but could hear them talking (screeching) to each other.

After about 10 minutes,when they had enough rest, they all took off. Two landing atop a mesquite tree to get the lay of the land to continue their hunt. It was time to hawk ‘n’ roll!

It always a treat to see these awesome creatures! Although, it’s hard to really get a perspective of actually how big these birds are in photos! So maybe this will give you a better idea…. :0
