I was on the phone with a friend when she said, "OH there's a hawk on my wall!" and she ran out to take this photo. It is a Harris Hawk and I was surprised that he was so close to humans and dogs (her dog was barking in the back yard at the bird and it wasn't fazed). To see more Harris Hawk photos you can scroll back and see the photos I posted on November 28 from the Desert Museum's Raptor Free Flight program.

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
