    Any idea about species? Looks familiar, but I can't place it.
    Nice picture! I'm going to take an educated guess at Red-Tailed Hawk.
    You just can't see the red tail feathers because the top tail feather are covering them.

    That's what I thought, Taurus, but as you said, couldn't see any red, so was confused.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    You can really only see the red if the bird is in flight directly over you. From the angle that the picture was taken, you'd never see the red tail feathers.

    Nope, not a red tail.

    Our feathered friend was back a few minutes ago and was perched on a lower branch of one of the pine trees. I went out to see what was up as it was a odd place for him / her to sit. As I got closer, he / she flew off into the woods and there were no red tail feathers.

    I suspect that we either have mice or rabbits in the wood pile close to where it was perched, hence the reason it keeps coming back.

    I didn't know hawks could turn their heads like owls can. Now I do...LOL

    It may not be a red tail, but it is some kind a hawk. I'll do more research.

    Identifying a buteo species really depends on where you're located. Looks like a red-shouldered hawk to me.
