Swainson's hawk?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

We saw this raptor in Pawnee National Grassland in June.
I think it is a Swainson's hawk because of its white belly, brown breast and dark plummage, and yeah off course also because we observed it in a open grassland ecosystem.
I would love to h
Dropbox.exeear your opinions.

Sorry for the bad picture quality, but at least the color features are visible :-)

Welcome to Whatbird!

That looks good for a Swainson's Hawk, with those long wings and a brown hood.
