Nice out this morning. Came back from my walk and bailed into a cloud study I started a week ago. I believe this is my 13th take on this summer's Monsoon Madness.
Still working on Wild Bill stuff. This was too late to make the issue, but will go in the book.
Glad I did. It turns out that Harris's Hawk got its English name from John James Audubon and he gave the bird the name in honor of his companion and financial supporter, Edward Harris. Well, crap, that totally ruins the autenticity of that time and place. Evidently, these hawks were formerly known as dusky hawks, but that sounds almost too dramatic—and made up! Imagine an Apache warrior in 1888, looking up in the sky and saying, "Isn't that a Harris's Hawk?' And Geronimo, who is looking over his shoulder says, "No, I hate to disagree with you, but to my eye, that's a dusky hawk."
I think Hunter Hawk is the name I will go with.
