Meet the brilliantly named sharp- shinned hawk. During migration these hawks can be seen in large numbers in North America with hundreds sometimes seen passing through favoured spots on coastlines and lake shores. Some individuals are long-distance migrants covering distances of up to 1500km between breeding and wintering grounds. Birds bathe to keep their feathers in good condition. 📷 Image by @jtw86 via @audubonsociety/Audubon Photography Awards.
