Alongside the interstate just south of Rincon, New Mexico there’s a big nest in a mesquite tree. I’ve watched it for years usually slowing down to 65 mph. Often it’s empty, but sometimes there was a Redtail hawk in it.
This year I saw more and finally stopped. It’s a Swainson’s Hawk and chick. I just grabbed a few quick shots – didn’t want to upset either bird. They were a nice reward for my time spent on the interstate. No back roads for these guys!
