Young Hawk

Rarely can I think of an occasion when even the experts can’t agree on identification. Yet, this young bird has left us all scratching our heads. It showed up in the trees of a back yard close to the lake, but not on the lake.

Because it is so young our books and experiences have left us to wonder. We think it is either an immature Red Shouldered Hawk or an immature Swainson’s Hawk. Weigh in and give your opinion.
