Description

This bird may have made the local urban rodents nervous. I saw one of them make a run for it from one hedge to another. The bird saw it too, and moved from a tree perch to a nearby bench to make a couple of forays into the bushes, but without any luck

Description from Wikipedia

The order Falconiformes is a group of about 290 species of birds that contains the diurnal birds of prey. The Falconiformes have long been thought to represent a natural evolutionary grouping, but three recent studies of their DNA suggest that their similarities are convergent. In each study, falcons are related to songbirds and parrots, and the hawks, eagles, and vultures are closer to woodpeckers and kingfishers.

No range data available.
