Hawks of The Vermilon River.
I always see these guys circling looking for prey, and they're a long way up. If I knew where they nested I'd be camped out looking for close-up shots . But it appears I have to settle for what I can get. It also makes the ID difficult, but I think they are Northern Goshawks, although Red-Tailed Hawks are native to the area. ID'ing of birds is getting more difficult. With the re-greening of the area, and global warming, new species are moving in. The other day I had to send a photo to Science North, a type of natural history museum to help in an ID.
