Description

Hawk with yellow eyes, big body, brown/white belly and broad wings when flying. Brown/black tail (striped). The bird flew to a tree right next to the trail. It was absolutely amazing to see the hawk that close, and I was surprised that it was not bothered by our large crowd.

I lightened up the image so I could see some detail, and agree with your ID
