Sheila’s Bird Shots ~ Swainson’s Hawk ~

On August 3, 2013, I spotted this beautiful Swainson’s Hawk, sitting high on a utility pole, scouting for lunch near a Prairie Dog community.

A little later it flew to a different pole. I could tell from the poop these must be favorite spots to scout for prey.

(Light and location wasn’t the best, but you take the shot and see what you get.)
