I get this big black Hawk looking bird flying over my house sometimes pretty high in the sky they soar, They sometimes come down near the ground and their wingspan is bigger than that of a Red Tail Hawks or any Hawk I seen before I don't think its an eagle or any type of Vulture because I live in Illinois and I don't believe those birds exist in IL but I could be wrong. Its all black maybe a little brownish in some places and has a bright yellow beak I wish I had a photo of it. It looks very hawkish and it seems to fly slower than a Red Tail and its pretty huge when its close to land. The farmers call them Chicken Hawks but I thought Chicken Hawk was a name given to a bunch of different kinds of Hawks?
Turkey vulture maybe? I'm from Illinois, and that sounds like what you're describing. :)
It might be but don't they have a pink head? This birds head was all black too I think it might be a Harris Hawk from what I seen of it it looks exactly like that. Not 100% sure thoughAsh wrote:Turkey vulture maybe? I'm from Illinois, and that sounds like what you're describing. :)
The Harris Hawk is from the southwestern united states and they're not black.
They do have pink heads, but when they're up in the sky I can't tell. They just look all black to me unless I get a look at them on the ground. :) When they're eating something in the fields, I can see their bald little heads.
