A Dark Hawk

The thought of witnessing a Golden Eagle first hand was overwhelming. I couldn't stand it, climbed into my truck and set out for Fabacher Road after work today.

The Golden Eagle was not found but there was a peculiar looking dark Hawk sitting in a tree. My camera was up in a flash, focused and the shutter pressed.

This is really a fine looking dark hawk that I believe to be a Harlan's Red-Tailed Hawk. The Hawk never flew as I drove away. This is one cool looking raptor as you can see.

Please let me know if you feel this raptor is misidentified and of another species.
