What type of Hawk is this beauty?

Recommended Posts

Photos of a nice hawk I saw just north of Sacramento.  I have suspicions but wondering what the experts think.  Both photos are different angles of the same bird. Thank you!

Maybe a Swainson's, but wait for a more knowledgeable response. Regardless, nice photos of a pretty bird!

Looks good for a young Swainson's with the white on its face and chin, and the light undertail coverts. I'd say a young dark morph. Nice shots!!
