    Default Bird on Camera

    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.

    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?
