Observation details

Photos, juv. Sitting on a low perch in the forest just below the old mine on the nature trail loop. Size and flight style appropriate for Gray Hawk. Actively hunting from perch (chipmunks?). Gave an awkward vocalization (jumble of gurgled notes) when it took off from its perch. I was not expecting Gray Hawk at this elevation and considered Broad-winged Hawk and Red-shouldered Hawk but bill and tail proportions and patterns support Gray Hawk.
