Guapo was found as a first-year bird in Gold Beach on the southern coast of Oregon in early October 2016. Besides being far outside the normal range of a Swainson’s Hawk, he was landing on people’s arms seeking food; clearly, he had been illegally hand-raised.
Swainson’s Hawks have one of the longest migration routes of any bird species, traveling over 6,000 miles every year from Canada and the U.S. to the Las Pampas region of Argentina. In Argentina, they are known as Grasshopper Hawks (halcón saltamontes), since in this region their primary prey are insects.
