Swainson’s Hawk


(Buteo Swainsoni)

Swainson’s Hawk, widespread throughout the west, exists in light, dark, and intermediate color morphs. It differs from other buteos by virtue of its unusually pointed wings, which help to identify it in flight. The white face and dark bib are useful features for identifying light and intermediate morphs.
