Pair of Swainson's Hawks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

These birds of prey were taking time out to preen themselves while winds ruffled their feathers.  It was difficult to catch them facing me but I managed this by taking a frame from my video below.  

Not certain if they were a mating pair or mother-juvenile pair.  The one on the left looks to be the same as the one here last year.

Taken at 2000mm focal length with a Nikon P950 on 4 May near Cheyenne, Wyoming.  A video of this can be viewed at:
