Harris's hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus), formerly known as the bay-winged hawk or dusky hawk, and known in Latin America as peuco, is a medium-large bird of prey that breeds from the southwestern United States south to Chile, central Argentina, and are sometimes reported at large in Western Europe, especially Britain, but it is a popular species in falconry and these records almost Class: Aves.

Buteo is a genus of medium to fairly large, wide-ranging raptors with a robust body and broad wings. In the Old World, members of this genus are called "buzzards", but "hawk" is used in North America (Etymology: Buteo is the Latin name of the common buzzard).As both terms are ambiguous, buteo is sometimes used instead, for example, by the Peregrine : Aves.

Breeding territory was to km² ( to mi²) in Utah (Smith and Murphy ). Active nests have been recorded within m ( ft) of one another (EndersonGarrett and Mitchell ), in sites where individuals did not confront or see each other regularly.

Swainson's Hawk Buteo swainsoni Family: ACCIPITRIDAE (Brown and Amadon ). Home Range: In Utah, breeding home ranges of 3 pairs averaged km² ( mi²), and varied from to km² ( to mi²) (Smith and Murphy ).
