this dark-morph Swainson's hawk was about half a mile away and being pestered by a blackbird. I didn't think i'd get a decent enough shot to ID it, but with the help of the folks below, it seems pretty clear. Not an eagle which is what I thought it was at first. Even better.

I'm not sure of this ID - never seen this species before, but I can't see any other options that seem similar. the "hairy shoulders" seem pretty distinctive, as does the tail shape
