I got some new photos of the Swainson’s hawks that nest near our home in Prescott. The other day I saw one of these on our porch. They are insectivores, likely it was hunting for grasshoppers or cicadas which are very numerous at this time of the year.
Today I went to the Jay’s Bird Barn 13th anniversary event. I buy my birdseed there, and the folks are very knowledgeable about local Prescott birds. They had some captive raptors there today from Arizona’s Raptor Experience.
