    • Thanks for your comment! This is actually a juvenile Swainson’s hawk. There were four of them cruising the market that day, but this one posed nicely.

    • Well done Oggie. Juvenile Swainson’s hawk it is. There were four of them cruising the market, but this one sat still long enough for me to take a quick picture.
