Hello from Spokane, WA. I love this web site have been viewing it for a few days and I like all that is posted and talked about here. I posted a pic of a hawk in my fir tree, still trying to identify it and thought someone out there might know for sure. Have looked at so many hawk pics on line that it confuses me even more, lol.

Hello Cathy, 107 views and no-one has said hello!! - welcome to Surfbirds Forum.
I have looked at your other post and would agree with Brian that your bird is a Sharp-shinned Hawk, and probably a juvenile (1st winter) based on the breast plumage and the yellow orbital ring to the eye.
