Grey Hawks ~ Nesting Pair in Sparks, NV

We were playing horse shoes (yes, I lost again…skunked once) at a small park in Sparks, NV along the Truckee River when I heard some loud squawking in the trees overhead. I finally found one of the squawkers who was calling out to her mate, he was sitting in the pine tree not far away.

Me thinks they are a pair of nesting Grey Hawks…more like I think they are Grey Hawks, I know they are nesting as I saw the nest. 🙂

And the big guy she was talking too…

The nest is on the lower left corner…

  1. I got a bird book and binoculars for my birthday a few years back and it’s made camping trips that little bit more fun. Never seem to get any good photos tho. Yours are excellent.
