Description

Audubon examines the plight of the Swainson's hawk. The birds migrate from the United States and Canada to Argentina in the winters. Thousands of birds have perished in recent years due to exposure to acutely toxic chemicals that Argentine farmers use to kill grasshoppers, the hawk's prey. It is estimated that 5 percent of the hawk population perished in one season. (September - October, 1996)
