Somerville Hawk (what kind?)

Patsy saw this hawk in Teele Square the other day, and today on my way home from the supermarket I saw it again – this time I went to get my camera. It is pretty big, and although this was shot near sunset, the hawk itself is pretty much grey/white – not the brown/red I’d expect from a redtail hawk. Is it a redtail? Something else?

  1. Yes, it’s a redtail – not quite full-grown. Telltale marks: spots on breast, bars on tail. Beautiful photos!
