Hawk in the distance flying over the bosque.


This very large bird looks like an Osprey, but it doesn't seem to have read the owner's manual. It looks to be carrying a rodent of some type, but Ospreys are supposed to feed solely on fish. It flew out of the trees, saw me and made a quick turn back into the trees, so I only got one clear shot of it.



I am guessing this guy is a Northern Goshawk.

Thanks, Sarah. It can be hard to identify some immature hawks and kites since they can have much different markings from when they mature.
