Need an ID on this Raptor
« on: January 15, 2017, 05:14:12 PM »
There is a pair of them nesting 1/2 a block away for the past few years. This one was having a long lunch on my telephone pole today allowing me time to get a decent photo.

Someone please post and ID for this guy...

Sorry, you can copy paste coordinates into google and it will show you a map location.

Yes Houston Texas, the pair nest near a bayou that runs through the city. Lots of wildlife on the bayou and intersecting power line right of way, including Coyotes. I am often finding piles of feathers in my back yard from their kills. Numerous dove pigeon and squirrels year round.

Yes he was, he was also keeping his head turned towards his mate listening for her calls and answering them. He was up there for about 40 minutes, taking his time eating I guess.

Yup, we have lots of those around here.
