The Swainson’s hawk youngster is getting bigger. Here are two photos of mom and baby. And one of mom bring a squirrel to the nest – not a great image but you can see the squirrel’s tail hanging below the hawk.
A spotted towhee using the bird bath in our Prescott Az yard. I must have startled it when I took the photos as a few drops of water are flying.
I was going outside when I heard a hawk’s call. Got my camera and captured this image of a Swainson’s hawk in flight, slightly backlit.
The 2nd photo shows how large the nest is, 4 feet or so across. Shot in Prescott, Az
