Yes Desmond it had been
Looks like is raining.
Thank you again marirs
The juvenile red-shouldered don't have the vertical streaking on the breast, they have diamond like patterns instead.
Thank you sir!
Very nice portrait shot.
He's still young, doesn't know any better! I've had that happen with immature cooper's and red-tails before
Some of the references I googled look like Cooper's. Pretty brave bird, I got within a few feet of it and it just looked at me! So cool!
Pretty sure it's an immature cooper's hawk, but those thin legs make me want to say sharp-shinned. Streaking on the breast isn't right for sharp-shinned though
