Swainson's Hawk in Willits

While birding the skate park with me in Willits this morning, my daughter Alexandria spotted a Swainson's Hawk soaring high overhead.  Light adult type buteo with dark tale and head.  Dark leading wing edges on underside along with dark wing tips.  Mostly off-white elsewhere on the undersides.  No dark patagials discernible.  A couple of lousy distant pictures posted to ebird.  See list at: https://ebird.org/checklist/S84986974
