The Camera is setup for viewing hummingbirds on a window mounted feeder,
I have the V3 Cam attached to the other side of the window with small strips of velcro (cheaper than the 10 dollar option from Wyze ( Window Mount for Wyze Cam v3 )
I wish the hummingbird feeder and hummingbirds were in focus more than the hill behind the house.
With all the footage I get on my cameras, I was very lucky to have seen this and create a quick snapshot of the falcon.

What a great picture. Could be a post card, for those of you who remember those.
Love the snapshot great catch!
I think it is a buteo since it has short rounded wings. Falcons have long pointed wings
Helo Cooldood, thanks for the feedback, I was going with what my neighbor thought this was.
Upon visiting this page: Identification Keys and Tips - Common (Buteo) Hawks
I think you are correct, in that it is a Buteo (i’d never heard of that word before now)
But, what type of Buteo do you think this is? I at first thought it was Ferruginous Hawk, but this page states:
Other Identification Keys: Ferruginous Hawks have fully feathered legs, all the way down to their feet.
I’ve a better close up of our visitor just posted at:
What type of hawk do you think this is?
Definitely not a Ferruginous. They do not have banded tails. If I were to guess it is a a broad winged hawk. They are usually near riparian forests ( river and streams).
