I noticed a bird on the Presidential web cam at 11:10am on 5/21/09.
Was that a hawk?
Can anyone identify it?

Before opening it up, I would have had $10 on raven. They are typically the birds at elevation in the mountains. Second guess would be vulture.

However, looking at it, I'm not sure.

Here's the link...

That does not look like a raven at all.

True, but the elevation of the Presi Cam is well within the normal range of many other birds.

Definitely some kind of hawk.

Well, I went down south to Kenny's Bunk Port in Maine once. Wanted to see the beach. Does that count?

If there were pigeons it counts! BTW, that's down east.
