    It's a falcon, I'm not sure exactly what species it is though. I only know the falcons down here in Texas really well...

    Beautiful pic though! :)

    Looks kinda like a Harrison Hawk but I'm not sure what their range is.

    I'm sitting here with my bird book and the closest thing to that bird is the Prarie Falcon.
    I would say that it's definately a juvenile female Prarie Falcon(winter coat)
