I think that's a Double Split wing Brown Hawk. Just kidding, I have no idea, but nicely captured.

I'm with LWW, I think it's a Redtail too. Those birds are massive, they're known to hunt small rabbits around here. Great shots!

thanks for the comments and opinions everybody... i can usually recognize the redtails, i think i was just thrown off because this one is a juvenile... he just seemed so BIG for a juvenile... :thumbup:

In case anyone missed the photographer's mark on the photo I posted I can't take credit for it, I found it just to show a known redtail for comparison by former members.

I can however add this

raptor, and I'm honestly not sure what it is?

And here's the same guy again:

all I'm (pretty) sure of is that it's a falcon.
