Return of the Argentinians

Yesterday I had my first sighting of these summer-time residents this season. This female Swainson’s Hawk was hanging out alongside a busy road north of Denver International Airport.

These beautiful raptors are found across the American West during the summer months. They arrive in such numbers that they become almost more common than the ubiquitous Red Tailed Hawk. It is here that they will mate and have young before heading south to Argentina for the winter.
