Wind ruffles Swainson’s Hawk’s feathers

More and more of these Argentinians are showing up on Colorado’s plains.  Soon they will be picking nest sites and beginning their mating routine.

On Sunday I came across this male hanging out at the top of a tree, hanging on tightly in gusting 35mph winds.  Like most Swainson’s I have found, this one was quite indifferent to my presence only briefly glancing my way before returning his stare to the adjacent field.
