Red-tailed hawk.

While out looking for the great kiskadee, heard but not seen, I came across this juvenile red-tail in a tree.

Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada, Nov 8, 2018.

Buteo jamaicensis
The Red-tailed Hawk has a thrilling, raspy scream that sounds exactly like a raptor should sound. At least, that’s what Hollywood directors seem to think. Whenever a hawk or eagle appears onscreen, no matter what species, the shrill cry on the soundtrack is almost always a Red-tailed Hawk.
