Subtitled Soaring Hawk. "Whether in migration or on site for its spring and summer residency, hawks will soar for a variety of reasons. Their courtship rituals may include time in the sky wherein the male will demonstrate his fitness to the female. Certainly a hawk will ascend skyward where it can scout for prey below or patrol its territorial borders. I wonder too if there may be an element of delight the bird feels being aloft against the clouds." - Tony Angell
