While birding on El Cardonal Rd. Baja Sur

we spotted what looked to be a lifer for us.  The beautiful bird pictured here is a Harris’s Hawk, (a Buteo).  Buteos are high-soaring hawks that are one of the easiest daytime birds-of-prey to spot.  These birds are chocolate brown overall, with striking chestnut shoulder patches, leggings and wing linnings; bright white underneath and the tail tips.  Wing span is 46″.
