Payette, Idaho Hawk ID Help

Recommended Posts

I had a field filled with hawks on 7-4-18. I was able to ID a few but there was a few that I was really questioning. These pics aren't real good so please be nice. :) Thank You

This is the closest I could get with this one, any help is appreciated.

Gut tells me Swainson's Hawk--seems to have white face, sitting on field is a typical behavior (looking for grasshopper lunch). Swainson's love to congregate before migration.  😉 Gary

From what I can see they're all Swainson's Hawks. The close-up photo looks like a young male with the lightish brown colors and incomplete bib. These guys are awesome during migration 🙂
