    Glad to see it is not the Gray Hawk, but it is a reminder to all who are chasing the bird to not approach too closely so this doesn’t happen to our star

      Glad to see it is not the Gray Hawk, but it is a reminder to all who are chasing the bird to not approach too closely so this doesn’t happen to our star bird! I hope to bring my Santa Barbara County list from 0 to many while visiting this amazing vagrant.

      Looks like a Cooper's Hawk to me! Sad to see but at least it wasn't the
      Gray Hawk.

      A few days ago, I saw the news article about the Grey Hawk in the
      Carpinteria Coastal View News. This morning at about 9:45 we were outside
      in the Padaro Lane area and heard a loud thud and this bird dropped almost
      at our feet. He hit a large window. I recognized it as the bird in the
      article (at least it sure looks like the one). Here are some photos that
      may help you with identification. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
