Cooper's Hawks and a Red Tailed Hawk visit our area. Those links will take you to the El Presidio grounds and give you a closer look at these fascinating creatures. Today I'm adding another hawk to know about here in the Tucson area.....the Harris Hawk.
These birds are amazing and they all have different characteristics. I've been watching them closely as they have been watching me:) Should I be scared? No. They are extremely intelligent creatures who work together as a team. The Harris Hawk is not native to Tucson and orginally hails from South America. But as ranchers spread out over the desert land, they brought their cattle and created water sources for this hawk.
