Hawks fly wild in Nevada. I see them almost daily in our neighborhood, especially near my home. This capture was taken in my travels and I had to stop and catch this awesome creature as he flew from tree to tree, on watch for some morsel of food I am sure. Landed in a bare tree with no leaves just so I could capture his beauty and reverence.

Hawk is a common name for some birds of prey, widely distributed and varying greatly in size.
The large and widespread Accipiter genus includes goshawks, sparrowhawks, the Sharp-shinned Hawk and others. These are mainly woodland birds with long tails and high visual acuity, hunting by sudden dashes from a concealed perch.
In Australia and Africa hawks include some of the species in the subfamily Accipitrinae, which comprises the genera Accipiter, Micronisus, Melierax, * Urotriorchis and Megatriorchis.
In the Americas (and other areas) the term includes small to medium-sized members of the Accipitridae—the family which includes the "true hawks" as well as eagles, kites, harriers and buzzards.
Owls are members of the order Strigiformes and are not hawks
