Thanks for replies. Well, I was afraid someone would ask the species of = hawk. I could not pin it down, but I was pretty sure it was a juvenile = of some sort. Just could not account for every stripe and detail to be = sure. I took some video and will inspect it better. And, I figure the hawk can pick-off a squirrel or two fairly easily as = our lazy, good-for-nothing, Bellevue squirrels are used to being chased = by my smallish yapping dog but not a Stuka dive-bombing them from the = air.

At this time of = year,=20 we have noticed young red tails learning to manage on their own.
