Found dead on pavement one morning. Assuming it died of disease, I avoided touching it while documenting the animal.
This guy was fighting a Crow and was dropped from about 50 feet up... it died on impact. Added to the collection at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.
Fairly large (guessing around 10 inch wing span), brown/red fur.
