Gray Hawks nest occasionally at Rio Grande Village in Big Bend National Park, Texas. In the summer of 1990 a pair of Gray Hawks fledged two young birds at this location. This is a shot of one of the young birds. The plumage with the broad, pale eye-stripe is distinctive to those who know this species.
We saw this guy race across the path, then blend in perfectly with the twigs & leaves along the side - we would have missed it if he hadn't run in front of us!
