Re: Hawk in Pleasanton neighborhood
Looks like a dark morph Ferruginous Hawk to me.

I first noticed a hawk stayed on my neighbor's tree last year on January 6, 2014. It hanged around there for over a month. It always came back around 3:30 PM and flew South as soon as the sun rises at 7:30 AM. It was gone by the time I purchased a scope in February hoping to take a good picture of it. This afternoon I am really excited to see a hawk perched on my neighbor tree again, almost exactly a year later. It appears to be the same hawk. Can someone ID the type of hawk it is? It is larger than the red-tailed. Thanks.--
