the bird is as large as a pigon has fethers like a hawk black chest band. it also has a red spot on back of head and a beak like a snipe. the fethers are lite brown on lower body with darker upper body . markings like a hawk .have seen this bird for several months always by his self. wonder what it is. the body is large and is marked with a long tail fethers also marked like a hawk or a game bird. the beak is long and is like a birg that looks for food on the ground. john
