Lou, very nice shots, I too have to little knowledge of the marking of young Hawks to know the difference, but once again, very nice shots.

Thanks Tom, maybe it is best to just call them by the grouping name "Accipiter". Whatever the make or model I am happy that they chose to visit my property and be kind enough to pose for me.

Lou - Whichever species of Accipiter, these are some very fine photos - great captures of the details and the personality. Hope you continue to observe, enjoy & photograph your "neighbors!" (and, of course, share your great photos with the rest of us...)

Mole I think the Accipiter's have found greener pastures. I have not seen or heard them for two days now. The last time I saw one it was on a high branch with a snake in its talons. Perhaps they hunt in an area until it is hunted out or the prey become wary of their presence and become more cautious and needing food, they move on to greener pastures.

Wonderful photos, Lou. Since I'm not a serious birder, I couldn't get any more specific than simply saying "some sort of hawk." Sorry to hear that they have moved on, but I assume you enjoyed their company while it lasted.

Amazing, Lou. You are getting to be quite the birder.

Very nice shots Lou, hope they stay around or come thrugh your neighborhood often. I have seen very few hawks in my neighborhood I can remember one red shouldered hawk but it was very shy.

Excellent shots, can't tell you what they are though. I remember one day seeing a hawk hanging around a tree near my office, but its never been back, unfortunately. There's at least one red-tailed hawk that hangs around near my subdivision, I can often hear it calling. I've rarely seen it, and then it was soaring so far above that there was no way to photograph it. That seems to be my story, they are common but I always see them soaring above.
