I think this is called an urban hawk. I was about to make a turn onto this side street when I saw this hawk fly by. I watched to see where it would go and my luck, it landed on top of a street lamp post. Awesome! No traffic. I turned on my camera, got to the corner and took some shots. I even got to make a U-turn and stop right under the lamp post to get more.
