Swainson's Hawk Nesting in Pinal County, Arizona

Notes | By Doug Jenness | Accepted August 01, 2020

In the spring and summer of 2020, I monitored the first known successful nesting of Swainson’s Hawk (Buteo swansonii) at the Santa Cruz Flats in Pinal County, Arizona. Two nests fledged young at this agricultural area near Eloy between Tucson and Casa Grande.
