Most raptors are solitary creatures, but the Harris Hawk hunts in cooperative groups of two to six. They are non-migratory and build nests of sticks in trees, cacti or man-made structures. The males are smaller than the females and grow eighteen to twenty-four inches with wingspans of three-and-a-half to four feet. The regal bird in this photograph is a male.
