A close up photo of a Harris’s Hawk, showing its head in profile.
Harris’s Hawk is a unique raptor that isn’t very closely related to any other American birds of prey. It’s most famous for “back stacking,” in which several hawks will stand on each others’ backs. The behavior helps them see farther in the scrublands of South Texas, where trees don’t grow very tall.
