It's me again. I was looking at a map and read that in San jacinto there are 319 species of birds. I would call your local Audubon Society or send them your pic they will probably be able to ID it right away.

I'm not sure if you are asking or telling us that this is a hawk.

How many robins would it take to make up the size of this bird, or approximately how long is the bird?

Have you been able to see other color markings since this last post?

I don't know where hemet is can you tell us about the area....lakes, rivers, what kind of trees? Anything might help
