Hi all,
we saw this raptor flying over H14, January 10th 2011. Could you help me with the ID?

Not a great pic charbel, but my first instinct is a dark chanting goshawk.

Dear Bush Baptist,
Yes, the pic was not good. Cropped from a far away photo. Thanks for the tentative ID.
Any other opinions on this?

Cheers
Charbel
