Bird of Prey

by Cindy
(Smithtown NY)

Sitting on a tree, very dark, almost back wings with white spots on them. White under belly with slightly redish on the side near wings, small head, not to big a bird (about the size of a black bird) and a white(ish) ring around his neck. Too small to be a red tailed hawk (besides his tail was not red, very dark maybe a little white was on it. Sorry, new camera with no card in it yet UGH! By the way, he did swoop down, guess he got one of the birds at our feeder, I was upstairs with porch roof blocking my view of where or what he did when he swooped :( Couldn't find an identifiable photo online, anyone have any ideas? I think a kind of falcon...
