Juvenile Swainson’s hawk (Buteo swainsoni). This photo was taken by a birder in my area and the hawk was well outside of its range here in Western NY. I actually observed this bird twice as it was twenty minutes from where I live. Unfortunately, the bird was struck and killed by a car as it had been regularly seen sitting in the median of a busy parkway for several days. Many birders were drawn to the area and several witnessed the hawk’s demise. The specimen was sent to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
