A short detour after work led me to an area near Denver International Airport and a Swainson’s Hawk nest that I have documented extensively in recent months. Three young ones came out of it and they have all fledged but one was still hanging around.
The juvenile seemed to think it could intimidate me and chase me off. 😉
They won’t be around for long as they will soon begin their long migration to Argentina where they spend winter.
Scroll down below the main image for more pictures of the hawk and another that was nearby.
