Friday flight: Swainson’s Hawk head on

I snapped this image yesterday north of Denver International Airport. This gorgeous raptor was hanging out on a pole when it decided to put on a bit of an aerial show making multiple passes over me.

Swainson’s have returned to Colorado over the last week or so following their winter in Argentina and will soon be mating and setting up their nests. They arrive here in great numbers and it seems to me that while in the area, they become the most common hawk seen, even outnumbering Red Tails.
