photographing and learning about wildlife
Sitting about 15 feet up in a tree on the side of a golf course near wetlands area. 12-18" long.
Anyone familiar enough with hawks to help identify? Recently saw another very similar looking hawk. After staring and Sibley and Stokes I felt like that one was a Sharp-shinned Hawk. But really not sure at all about either this one or that one. Thought about the Florida Subspecies of the Red-shouldered hawk given the grey head. Went with that one after a suggestion came right in.
