Is this a Red-Tailed Hawk?
(Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)
My husband and I came across this bird on January 7, 2012.
We're in Hamilton, Ontario and we've been watching Red-tailed Hawks for years now.
This didn't seem to look like one.
It seemed a lot smaller than the hawks we've seen and its colours don't seem to be the same.
Could you possibly identify it for us.
Hi Petra, I'm not a bird expert, but I believe what you have here is a Kestrel - perhaps one of our readers will know for sure!
