I spotted these Harris Hawk while sitting in the motorhome. The sheer size of the bird is what caught my eye. Not a bird I expected to see in our park. I wish my photos were less blurry. My intent was to get it done and worry about blur later.
The caracara has more white around the neck so these must be Harris Hawks. They do have some similarities.
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
