1
Buteo sp.

Several of us had a clear, but, brief sighting of this buteo soaring somewhat low over the canopy in the woods. There was great debate about which species. Most likely an immature broad-winged hawk or immature red-shouldered as the breast was pale with some rufous baring but not a clear belly band; fine banding of the tail with a white bar across the tip.
