In a small kettle circling above Johnston High School at 9:35 am was a very dark Red-tailed Hawk. It appeared solid black until I got my binoculars on it. There was some streakiness to the belly and the tail was rufous. Two of the other birds were immature Bald Eagles and the fourth (highest up) was another darker buteo.
