Please let me know if these are inappropriate and I will remove them. I wasn't sure if I should post these or not because they are a little gory. I did a search through some old threads and saw others had posted some birds with their capture. So, I'm going to post a couple because I am trying to figure out what kind of hawks these are. I've checked a couple of websites, but I'm still not sure. These were both shot in my backyard, which makes me a little nervous about putting out bird feeders. I'd hate to see the little guys become the next victim. Here they are. Captured on two different occassions. The first one was farther back in my yard. It seemed like whatever it caught must have been rather large from the number and size of the feathers that were around. #1 And another angle because everything I was reading seemed to talk about the way the top of the head looked. #2 The second one was much closer on the railing of our deck. #3 #4 Thanks for any help you can provide with the types of birds they are. And I hope I didn't gross anyone out.
