Like the photos. Quick question, there's a bird circling on the left side of #1 and #2 and the wing shape suggests a hawk, is it?

A. C,

I have been a keen bird watcher since I was ten years old. The pictures are made with a 17-40 mm lens on a full frame camera house. Inevitabely there are distorsions at the wide end, which make a identification hard to do

Since this is not a video we have to go after General Impression of Size and Shape (to GISS; where GISS is a verb of course), otherwise it would have been easier.

The way birds fly can make an identification pretty consistent. We learn that as the years go by

So I can see 4 possibilities, considering the above


1 A crow


2 A dove.

There is a plethora of doves nearby the houses. One of the people who live there gives them food and water. At the right you can see a rope with doves sitting on it. They are barely visible on this photo. I'll find a picture of the multitude of doves


3 A Dove Hawk

Well, there two hawk species at the location. We call them Sparrow Hawk and Dove Hawk after the size of their prey and also the latter is larger. As I mentioned there are lots and lots of doves around the houses, so why not a hawk


4 An Osprey

They have the wide spread wing ends and comparatively short tail. Not too far from the area are meadows and a golf training facility. Large flat areas. Could be


I really didn't observe the bird(s) until you mentioned it. Had it been a bird of prey I would probably have noticed it, since I have trained my eyes for such things (You really must excuse my English)


So my best guess is a crow, but it might very well be a hawk


Hope this didn't tire you. I could be even more specific. That is a threat :-)


Cheers

No, it didn't tire me at all. I'm not so much a bird watcher but I enjoy the sght of everything that flys. Birds of prey and scavangers always seem to have the most effortless appearing flight as the soar on the updrafts while patrolling their range. The bird apprears to be soaring in the photo but as you're keen observer of birds of prey and didn't notice it at the time my guess was probably incorrect. Thanks for taking the time to answer my inquiry.
