Short-tailed Hawk in Tucson, 27 January 2008

This bird has been hanging around all winter, but I finally had the opportunity to go look for it! It was actually not too hard to find today, as it was soaring around when spotted. Considering how rare this bird truly is, I felt extremely fortunate to have it fly almost directly overhead several times...

What a treat!!

Good birding,
