Identification of Raptors and Other Large Birds of New Mexico Swainson’s Hawk (Buteo swainsoni) The Swainson’s Hawk is a large hawk of prairies and open country in western North America.

During. —Ryan A.

“Raptors of Western North America” and its companion volume, “Raptors of Eastern North America” are the 4th and 5th raptor guides that artist and photographer Brian Wheeler has authored.

Wheeler's first 3 guides were co-authored with biologist William S Clark. The earlier books emphasized field identification.Because of the elevations and colder temperatures involved, raptors in western North America tend to migrate a bit earlier than in the east.

Migration is always a challenge, whether to survive hurricanes, poor weather, snow, cold and lack of prey. Adult birds will migrate to the same wintering area where they wintered the year before.
