I saw a small hawk come out of the reeds right between the field & the ocean cliffs at Wilder Ranch. It had a distinct white band around the base of the tail. It was brown and flew away close to the ground. I've seen a few more in the ensuing days.
One I saw up near highway one had the same white band, and a very bright white belly.
