During the morning three groups of Swainson's Hawk like this one flew by very high in the sky. They moved in a spiral way towards the north west. We estimated a total of some 500 individuals.

Light morph. María José saw the Swainson's hawk take flight from the the Gull Pond. It flew towards the northeast as it gained altitude to jump on the thermal current.

Native to the United States and Canada this raptor migrates to Argentina during the austral summer. It is opportunistic and feeds on a wide variety of animals. Nevertheless when it is in Argentina its diet reduces mainly to insects such as locusts, crickets, grasshoppers, etc. caught and eaten on the wing.

Always in flight and sometimes very high in the sky they circle or fly past the reserve generally in big groups.
