More Ned's Notes (and Photos)

All Photos by Ned Harris 12/22/11

Bottom two, juveniles

Ned's notes from Bill Mannan's presentation "Tucson's Urban Birds of Prey."

  • Between 40 and 60 Harris's Hawk breeding groups in metro Tucson. 
  • Harris’s Hawks breed every month of the year in the Tucson area.
  • In 2003, over 100 Harris’s Hawks were electrocuted. Tucson Electric Power is doing a good job trying to protect them by putting plastic insulation on all poles within 300 meters of known Harris’s Hawk nest sites. Look for plastic insulation atop transformers.
