In the trees on the west side of the marsh north of the "narrows" of Baskett Slough (near where the Eagles like to hang-out), I saw a fairly large hawk that I initially took to be a Red-tail, by size, dark head and blocky shape. But it had an almost solidly rusty breast and no bands on the pale grayish tail seen from the underside as it faced me. It seems too big for a Cooper's and the tail's not so long. I have only a distant photo.
