- Hemignathus virens
The Harris's Hawk or Harris Hawk is a bird of prey which breeds from southwestern United States to Chile and central Argentina. They are also regularly spotted in Western Europe, especially Britain, but these records almost certainly refer to escapes from falconry trade.
John James Audubon gave this bird its English name after his friend Edward Harris.
