Swainson's Hawk

The Swainson's Hawk migrates south for the winter and spends the rest of the year in southeast Arizona. Fortunate for us.

We has spotted this type hawk in this area before.

This Swainson's Hawk was spotted on the southeast side of Tucson

This shot of a Swainson's Hawk looks like it might be in molt as you can see from the condition of the tail feathers and a few of the flight feathers.
