Long shot with a hawk

Recommended Posts

Not great pictures, but I'd be happy to see what guesses you all might have.

Today near Colorado Springs

Honestly, my first impression was Mississippi Kite, which If im not mistaken, is rare for CO. Google shows a small breeding population in the state, so I suppose it’s possible. It’s certainly a tough ID though.

Yes, Mississippi Kite. I've never seen one out that way, but it looks they've spread to Pueblo and Fountain these days. (They've been expanding dramatically in the last couple of decades.)
