Sharp-shinned Hawk


Contra Costa

This morning an immature Sharp-shinned Hawk was seen over the Moraga Regional Trail, north of Rheem Rd.
Quite well seen: sharp bend at the wrist (in a soar), squared off tail, rapid wing beats.

I know the bird is a rare breeder in these parts, but seeing a July Sharpie is a surprise.
