An owl? Or a hawk?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Caught this bird on a trail cam in a nice old woods on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, not far from Greensboro/Denton area, near some nice Carolina bays.   The photo is all I have to identify him with, I'm afraid.  Thanks!

I'm guessing a barred owl, however it's not the greatest picture so just wanted to double check what other people thought.

That’s what I was thinking. Owls legs don’t appear that long.

Looks better for a hawk to me, probably Broad-winged/Red-shouldered.

But that face! It looks like a gargoyle!

Appears to be raining and the bird looks soaking wet, no-one is at their best under these circumstances🙂. Having said that it does look a little scary.
