Description

Approximately 8-9” tall. Brownish chest (definitely not white or cream) and looked like a solid colour. Darker gray back that was speckled. Had a band of darker colour that went through the eye area. Sat on the wire for quite a while. My impression was that it was a hawk but can not identify it in any of my books. Was a compact bullet type shape. I didn’t have binoculars so unable to see more details.
