Short-tailed Hawk, adult, Chihuahua Woods Preserve, Mission Texas

In the "world's worst" category of lousy bird photos I was very happy to take, here's a few photos from Chihuahua Woods Preserve near Mission, Texas this morning (8/7). This adult Short-tailed Hawk played tag with the treetops for me and finally when I got to an open area I was able to get a couple quick shots off - though I missed better opportunities. These are heavily cropped and one is darkened very slightly as the whites were bleached out.
