Often when I am plowing a field, Swainson's hawks will sit on the ground around any isolated stands of grass/weeds. As I continue and the piece gets smaller, cottontails, jacks, rats and mice will come running out and run the gauntlet. Even red-tailed hawks which are very leery of humans will sit in brush, trees or posts close to where I am working.
