We see a variety of birds here in Florida and we are fortunate to see many just passing through.
But I think the hardest ID is with juveniles.
This is probably a juvenile hawk. Is that what my birders think? And what kind of hawk?
It stopped in the pine tree behind our house so
we hubby had time to zoom in AND focus!
You can see when he turns his head, how dark it is!
Thanks for these AMAZING photos Mr. L D !
I got lots of help identifying this beautiful bird. Thank you all SO very much! I knew I could count on you. It’s a Red-tailed Hawk. (Buteo jamaicensis)
I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE
and I’d Rather B Birdin’.
