Have been hearing a raptor call incessantly for last few days.  Today walked up Howe to Colorado & there it was atop a pine tree.  Didn't have binos with me so not completely sure of ID but sounds like a kid's whistle over & over again.  Large & brown...Swainson's?

I’m still hearing young Swainson’s Hawks calling for mom and dad to bring them food. And they seem to like perching in the top of evergreens. Red-tails, on the other hand, seem to be beyond that stage.
