This fellow stopped by this afternoon and posed nicely for me. My wife and I went out into the yard and he just watched us. I have my Canon T71 mounted with an old Canon 100-300 zoom and took several snaps on full auto. He eventually flew up into a nearby tree (backlit against a fairly bright sky) and I was able to snap a few more. These are uncropped, handheld.

Cany anyone identify the type of hawk??

What kind of hawk it is depends on your location

Musicman, these are superb captures I had one in my yard last summer, and it was a thrill to get the shot πŸ€—

Could be a Juvenal Redtail Hawk.

It doesn't matter where you live, it's a Red-tailed Hawk. Very nice set

Great shots. EBird identifies it as a red shouldered hawk based upon your first photo. But could be an immature red tailed hawk.

Nice captures!

I would suggest it’s likely a juvie red shouldered hawk. The belly feathers are typical of that breed and they are VERY common in FL.

(But I have been wrong before. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
