Today when we went out to check for birds we found a large charm of Finches. We also noticed a bird flying over our heads. At first we thought it was a Mourning Dove, but the flight pattern was off and when we saw its head we knew it wasn't a Mourning Doves. We then inferred that the bird was an Accipeter or a Falcon.
