Swainson's Hawk images. Kuna, Idaho (Gateway to the Morley Nelson Birds of Prey Area)
We were driving to the store recently and in the grass and on posts, at the ball field in our little town, we saw these hawks. They appeared to be juveniles (new fledglings perhaps). The parents were also in the area. They were obviously better at flying as one of the young ones flew into a tree and then flew low just over our heads before landing on the fence. The other one never left the ground, but continued finding insects and things to consume the whole time we were there while the other kept watch.
