Marty noticed this adult Cooper's Hawk doing a flamingo imitation. 

Terry responded to the post about Harris's Hawks

I live right on Sabino Creek just south of the bridge one crosses to begin the Phone Line Trail, where the creek hits private land. For decades, we have had a large family of Harris Hawks in the cottonwoods surrounding our back yard right on the Sabin Creek, only one hundred meters from the National Forest line.
