    1. Hi, Randall. It was photographed from the ground, at ~13,500 feet. (Also, I think the “falcon” might be a Cooper’s Hawk, which I misidentified.)

        1. Cooper’s Hawk indeed. You can just make out the graduated outer tail feathers. The crisp breast streaking and head projection also support the ID.
