Hawk Fest 2015 Scavenger Hunt 3
Congratulations, you’ve found the Sharp-shinned Hawk!
“A tiny hawk that appears in a blur of motion—and often disappears in a flurry of feathers. That’s the Sharp-shinned Hawk, the smallest hawk in North America and a daring, acrobatic flier. These raptors have distinctive proportions: long legs, short wings, and very long tails, which they use for navigating their deep-woods homes at top speed in pursuit of songbirds and mice.”
Listen to a call from a Sharp Shinned Hawk below.

“This towering site is great for spotting high-flying hawks and even better for chatting with HBMO experts. Enjoy the view, just watch your step!”
