Devin Jaffe from Nature’s Educators describes the Harris’s hawk. Harris’s hawks are pack hunting birds, nicknamed the “Wolves of the Sky”. They live in packs of up to 10-15 with an average group size of 3-5 hawks per pack. The packs establish territories, nests, and breeding grounds together. This is believed to be an adaptation to the lack of prey in the desert climate in which they live. The diet of the Harris’s hawk normally consists of small creatures including birds, lizards, mammals, and large insects, however since it often hunts in groups, they can also take down larger prey.
