Harris's Hawk: Parabuteo unicinctus

Harris’s Hawks are commonly found in the arid desert regions of the Southwestern United States. They are one of the only raptor species that hunt in pairs or groups, and thus have earned the nickname “wolves of the sky”. The 4-H Center’s two Harris’s Hawks were hatched in spring of 2011 by an individual breeder in Michigan for education.
