Drawings from the Stone Age show the earliest interest in birds and the remains of over eighty bird species have been found at excavated...

The Swainson's Hawk (Buteo swainsoni) is a large hawk named after William Swainson, a British naturalist. It is found on prairies and in dry grasslands throughout the western plains of North America.
