Amazing shots! Can you elaborate on the classification? I tried googling and couldn't find much.

Gongrats on the find, and the 500th species in flight!

Certainly a different looking bird. :D

BRAVO!

Pretty awesome.
To get a shot or 2 of a rare bird is nice but to get great flight shots is even better.
Congrats.

I was tempted to ask if you were sure it weren't really a Cooper's Hawk, but this is too magnificent to joke about. Congratulations on your diligence and excellent skills in photographing this bird. These have rank among the best.

Thank you every one !!!
