This week's choice for H is described by Wikipedia like this:
The Harris's Hawk or Harris Hawk, Parabuteo unicinctus, formerly known as the Bay-winged Hawk or Dusky Hawk, is a medium-large bird of prey which breeds from the southwestern USA south to Chile and central Argentina.
It is the only member of the genus Parabuteo. The name is derived from the Greek para, meaning beside or near, and the Latin buteo, referring to a kind of hawk; uni meaning once; and cinctus meaning girdled , referring to the white band at the base of the tail.
I took the picture at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England in the summer of 2006.
