A Hawk in the Sun: Adventures Studying Hawks
A Hawk in the Sun brilliantly shows the passion of a true scientist. The research was of the nesting and other habits of the ferruginous hawk-an extremely shy and difficult-to-study bird that is the largest hawk in North America. The reader will be emotionally involved from the fight between a pair of hawks and a coyote through the author's description of Penelope, the stay-at-home mom, to the poignant death of a hawk chick.
