Common Black-Hawk, Maricopa County, AZ - July 24th
Common Black-Hawk - Adult in Sycamore Creek, July 24th, 2008. With a few hours to kill as I waited for my tour group to arrive in Phoenix, this adult Common Black-Hawk came as a welcome find on a hot afternoon. I'd headed north for a few hours to escape to heat of 'the valley' and found a number of good birds in the Sycamore Creek and Mt.Ord area, including some of my best views of this species.
