West Texas Bird of the Day: Common Black-hawk

Speaking of birds that do stuff, we were lucky enough to be at the Common Black-hawk nest in Rio Grande Village,TX when the pair changed places. One bird sailed in low over our heads (above) and the sitting bird left the nest and perched nearby as the incomer took its place. The former sitter roused and preened as if very glad to have a break from incubation. Very cool!

Today we're off to the desert on this Audubon Naturalist Society/MG Nature tour.
