Harris Hawk or Golden Eagle

Recommended Posts

A had three of these birds eyeing a quail that flew into my window. Are these Harris Hawks or Golden eagles?  This one had a patch of white on the very top of its head. This is in the Sonoran Desert, foothills of Carefree, AZ. 

All three are seen flying together in the canyon next to my home.

Is the prey an American Pipit?  That should give an idea of size.  Golden Eagles are huge.

If they were hunting together, Harris’s Hawk is the best choice. That aside, it is a Harris’s 

Thanks for spelling the bird's name correctly.
