Alert


 This hawk was spotted on one of the cool mornings we have had and is all puffed up to stay warm while it watches carefully for any prey. I'm not good on IDing hawks so have no idea what kind it is.

The bird is a beauty and keeping an eye on things. Excellent title for this post!

Great photo!
It could be a young Hawk that has not got all its adult coloration yet. But if I had to make a guess, I would say Red-tailed Hawk (the red tail feathers are not always visible).
Hope someone with more expertise than me can give you a positive ID.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Soccer fans, of course, would immediately recognized it as a "Toronto Hawk". :-)

Hello. Great sighting. I can't identify the hawks in your country. I hope you find out what it is.
Take care.
