Description

A black-and-white photo of a young Marsh hawk. Marsh hawk nests are typically on the ground, near water. They are made of dry grass and are around eight inches wide and two inches deep. Young Marsh hawks are born with a soft yellowish-white color, but after a few weeks, they turn to the brownish color of the mother. Young males are smaller than young females. The young leave their parents in the fall and then hunt together. This young Marsh hawk is sprawled out near the edge of its nest. The shadows from the tall surrounding plants cover the hawk.
