These hawks are actually sociable. The live in small groups, hunt in a pack, and care for each others  young.

This bird had no problem landing in the tops of near by trees, then coming back down when called. There was a small group of photographers and he would simply fly over or between us.

    1. Thank you. Very interesting, and beautiful bird. Strang how they actually hunt in groups. But I did watch how this one flew very low to the ground, different than other Hawks. Almost skimming the ground like an owl. Thanks again for stopping by.
