Harris’ hawks are the most recognizable dwellers of the Sonoran Desert, indigenous to Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and introduced in California. They have a wingspan from 3 – 4 feet wide, weigh anywhere from 515 to over 1500 grams (females are larger) and are matriarchal, led by an Alpha female. This is Morpheus and The Lady Morgana Pendragon.
