I'm thinking Rough-legged hawk but maybe Ferruginous? Any ID help would be appreciated.
Ya, definitely a Swainson's Hawk fosho.
What an adorable Swainy!! Nice series! ;-)
Thanks so much for the ID and the info Liam!
Both Ferruginous and Rough-legged would be feathered down the tarsus to the feet. Proportions and facial markings don't match for Peregrine Falcon. This is an immature Swainson's Hawk.
