Young Swainson’s Hawk poses for pictures

When I first spotted this raptor yesterday in Morgan County, Colorado, I wasn’t entirely sure what it was. Certainly it was the size of a hawk but the light coloring threw me off a bit. I have seen juvenile Swainson’s Hawks before, but never one of the light morph variety like this one. It was kind of fun to find something a bit different. He / she was definitely beautiful.
