Juvenile Hawk or Falcon?
(Petrolia, Ontario, Canada)
I noticed this bird of prey on our hay bales - I got as close as I could and using my zoom lens snapped these shots.
If someone knows what this is I would love to know for sure.
Any help is appreciated.
Thank you for sending your report and pictures - I'm sure one of our readers will be able to identify your mystery bird!
UPDATE: I am putting this report and pictures with the "Peregrine Falcons" section, because when I look at the second picture, the face really looks like a Peregrine to me.
Until I get more people writing in to tell me otherwise, I'm going to keep it there for now!
