[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Harris Hawk was discovered by Audobon. He named it after his friend, the Colonel Harris, who was with him at the time. Also called Bay Winged hawks, they are natives of the south western U.S.

They lay between two to four eggs. The young leave the nest after forty days.

Taken in captivity, Audobon Society, Greenwich CT.
