Harris Hawk

Parabuteo unicinctus

Harris hawks are large hawks with wingspans of up to 1 metre. They are the only bird of prey to hunt in family groups or packs.



Size: 48 – 56cm
Weight: Male – 725g, Female – 834 – 1047g



The Harris hawk lives mainly in open country in North and South America and are usually found in dry regions.



Their diet consists of small mammals, reptiles, birds and some carrion (dead meat). They will often hunt in pairs or small groups.



Harris hawks build compact nests made with twigs and lined with leaves and moss. The 3 to 5 eggs are incubated for 33-36 days and the chicks are cared for by both parents.



Harris hawks are not considered endangered as they have a large range and their population appears to be stable.
