Harris Hawks

Good evening All
Today was a big day for me concerning Harris hawks, I have been able to identify a whole family group living together
In a area not far from were I live. there is a total of six members of this group “maybe five now’ I’ve been watching
Them for about 8 weeks and I feel confident that this is 1 group
A property owner in the area who has helped me with taking pictures and information on this group has been a big help
In the next few weeks I’m going to start downloading videos of this group hunting and other things that they do
The location will be dubble obscured to protect these birds because in the past, a few A$$ H&ts have shot at and killed
One of these hawks. This evening I’m going to post each member of this family group, two of the juveniles have been banded for research purposes, I hope every one on here enjoys these photos and the videos

Post for the year

Good day all...

What a year this has been for me and my family
I’ve had a blast posting here on INat and I’m excited about next year
I’m probably not going to be as active as this year because we
Are getting ready to make move to New Mexico from Arizona
But I do plan on doing as much as I can. As the year comes to a close
I still have 11,000 plus observations to post on here from this year which
I Will add during the next two months,that will equals around 982 new species for me,
plus I’m still trying to figure out how to add the
2500 plus from last year. Reasons for not posting them was because I didn’t know the
Species then and also ran out of time. So if you start to notice a lot of oldies
Coming from me that will be the reason.
I hope all on here a happy New Years if I don’t make it back on here
