This Zone-tailed Hawk was photographed in Patagonia, Arizona. They are a much sought-after bird, more often seen flying with Turkey Vultures, where they blend in well, as their marking are much the same. They are a little smaller, and watch for the white bands on the tails in flight (vultures' tails are all black). You seldom get to see one perched in a tree, but I was out early and saw this one fly into the tree. Not a great shot, as it was overcast, early, and he was mostly silhouetted up in the tree. It still made me happy to get any shot at all.
