Photo taken at Laguna Seca Ranch in South Texas January 19, 2019.

Nikon D850, Nikon 300mm f/2.8 lens, Nikon 1.4 TC, 1/2000 sec at f/8.0, ISO 400.

The Harris's Hawk on the right is bigger than the Harris's on the left.  The larger Harris's on the right is the female.  The male is visibly smaller than the female.

Detail is better if you click on the image.

A handsome pair of hawks, Gene. The facing poses are excellent. Thanks for the information on gender size.

Awesome shot - nice perch, great ”poses”, and such a clean bg.
Good light,
