I have been in a birding black hole - doesn't seem to be much around! Came across this dark morph hawk - no idea on an ID....I don't know hawks well enough - especially this color... It was large, and very dark, only the yellow bill and yellow legs had color. The white the the tail was not very obvious, no other white on it - I first thought it was a raven - it was so black!
Other birds of note: a small pod of orange-crowned warblers and 4 or 5 white-throated sparrows (tan-striped). Notable lack of robins. Marsha Nyffeler Columbus, NE
