  1. Seen this afternoon just east of Jerseyville, Illinois. Both appeared to be medium-size hawks. Both were a good fraction of a mile away, resulting in grainy pix. The first has a distinct pointed bib, which suggests to me Swainson's but that's rare in Illinois. The second has the white scapula of a Red-tail but unusual white in the face. Any help is welcome. I understand if the pix is just too grainy for an ID. Thanks, Tom Fuller
  2. 14 Sept 2023 Gamboa, Panama Yellow-headed Caracara juvenile
  3. Photo Taken Wednesday, October 5, 2022, in Jim Wells County, South Texas. This one caught a dove in my garden and promptly landed nearby with his catch. I was so glad that I had my phone in hand. Help in identifying this one would be awesome! Happy Birding!
  4. Spotted near Menomonee River in Milwaukee today about 8 a.m. Is this a Golden Eagle? Any help appreciated. Dave
  5. Hey Everyone, Another WA state ID, I'm really bad at hawk IDs, I don't see enough of them ? Spotted in a group of 3, possibly juvenile, medium sized. Initially spotted near stream on logs on the ground. Plenty more photos if needed ? Thanks!!
  6. While hiking in the lower part of Embudito Canyon on the edge of Albuquerque, NM today (June 28, 2021), I came across a large hawk perched just off the trail in plain sight. I couldn't determine if it was a Red-tailed or a Swainson's. Looked to be an immature either way. I have attached a couple of grainy photos (best I could manage). As one can see, it's rather white on the front and head while largely brown, albeit mottled with white, on the back. Other info not readily apparent in the photos: thick subterminal band on the tail with three or four thinner bands above it; yellow tarsi and toes; yellow cere; yellow eyes; mostly white head with a bit of brown on top; and, maybe a bit of a belly band. Definitive answer anyone? And why? Thanks, amallen
  7. Hi, is it possible to determine whether this is a female or immature rough-legged hawk? seen on Amherst Island in April. thanks
  8. Hi, is that a red-tailed Hawk? an immature one? Seen today in Toronto. thanks
  9. Last from this weekend on Amherst Island... Is that a Hawk? Red-Tailed hawk? thanks
  10. HI, I saw this bird on Amherst Island yesterday. Is it a rough-legged Hawk? thanks
  11. HI, I saw this bird on Amherst Island yesterday. Is it a rough-legged Hawk?
  12. New York City, 4/1/21. This was very high up. I first thought it was a Gull. Only when I viewed and magnified it on my large monitors, did I start thinking it's a Cooper's Hawk. These are screenshots from video. Except as titled, I zoomed in for the s-shots. (I put just 4 into the message body; the others are too distorted when blown up as is done in the messages. - Although they seem to be in the msg body.) Thanks.
  13. This hawk is hanging around a field by our house in Wisconsin. Is it an immature one? Thanks in Advance, Karen
  14. Saw a small hawk perched on a wire. Parked a little way off and walked down to see the hawk. Photos just as it flew off. Norwalk, CT, Feb 21, around 4pm, clear conditions, near small frozen pond in residential area with deciduous trees and evergreens. I thought a Cooper's since the markings on the chest seem fine to me - and is the tail rounded like a Cooper's? But not sure. New to Hawk IDs. Appreciate any help.
  15. I recently stayed at a cabin in Paris Tennessee, and saw this large hawk-like bird above the large lake. The area is in the middle of the woods as well, in February, about midday. It seems to have a white head with a dark crown and around its eyes, and a solid white stomach with a bit of darker speckles on the chest. Unfortunately these are the best photos I have to share, even with my macro camera lens. Most search results came up with an Osprey? I know next to nothing about birds, but this fella just looks so beautiful, any help in identifying what kind it is would be appreciated!
  16. We have this hawk that comes around looking for quail to grab. I got this front and back shot through our kitchen window of it sitting on our back fence. Location is Nampa, Idaho, SW of Boise about 30 miles. December 2020. I think it's too small to be a Red-tailed...maybe a Swainson's? or Nothern Goshawk? Thanks up front.
  17. Seen December 30, midday, Stratford, CT (at Stratford Point, on LI Sound.) A Northern Harrier spotted about ten minutes earlier. Tentatively ID'd as immature Red-shouldered Hawk, but wondering if it might be broad-winged? Did not see it well in flight; it flew low, behind branches and landed again a short distance away. Appreciate any advice! Thanks.
  18. Hi, is that an immature red-tailed hawk? I'm never sure. seen in May in Toronto. Thanks
  19. I was taking some nice pictures of songbirds when this beautiful creature scared them all away. I have been wondering if it is a sharp-shinned or a coopers? I took a measuring tape to the spot where he landed on the chain-link fence and I estimate he is around 13-15" from tip to tail. Even though there were birds everywhere he did not catch any. He came face to face with a squirrel and did not attempt to kill it even though the squirrel was frozen like a deer in the headlights, so I think that prey was too big for him. Time of day was 11:30 am in London, Ontario, Canada. Thanks in advance for your help with this ID.
  20. If anyone could definitively tell me what species my new friend here is, that would be much appreciated! Everything I could gather from internet image searches has me thinking it might be a (juvenile?) Broad-winged hawk. He/she has become a regular morning visitor over our property here in Beckwith, Ontario (roughly equal parts mixed forest, open fields, and marsh), and has taken an interest in my drone flights. I'll post a follow-up with a video clip.
  21. Hi all! I am new to the website and to birding. I've got some field guides but sometimes that's not quite enough, so I am hoping someone's expertise can help me out here! The bird was seen along the Fox River in Waukesha, WI, at a very urban section of the river that is pretty much always populated with people. It's where the river junctions with North Barstow street in downtown Waukesha - in case you wanted to google maps it. It was flying in, chasing after smaller birds, and then it landed in this tree RIGHT ABOVE MY HEAD for just a minute or two and then it was gone! My guess is Cooper's or Sharp-shinned, seems difficult to tell the difference. Thanks in advance for any help! Ryan
  22. I can't see to identify this bird. At first I thought maybe a Prairie Falcon (near Colorado Springs, CO) but then it doesn't have the streaks coming from the eyes as the Prairie Falcon does. And if it's the same one I keep seeing, I was hesitant to think it's a juvenile. Many of the other similar birds in either the hawk or falcon designation, always seem to have some significant visible feature that this was doesn't have (yellow-ish beak or around the eyes, more dotted chest marks rather than streaks etc.). Anyone have a notion? Thanks!
  23. Greetings, This photo was taken on August 8, 2017. Upon looking at the photo again many years later, I did not even notice the second raptor! I am assuming the top bird is a Short-tailed hawk (Correct me if I'm wrong); however, the bottom one is giving me trouble. I want to say it's a dark morph short tailed, but its barred belly is giving me trouble.
