Swainson's Hawk Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  I always think Swainson's Hawks are so gorgeous to begin with, but really loved getting this one in the warm morning light.  He clearly had just fed, as you can tell by the dried blood on his feet. Taken in May 2005 near Lake Thompson in Kingsbury County, South Dakota.
