birds of prey

Yesterday, while playing outside at dusk (something we rarely do this time of year because of mosquitos) I noticed we have some other kind of bird of prey in our neighborhood. Smaller, with a fatter body than the red-shouldered hawks, these birds were catching swifts in flight! They were really really fast, and stayed close to the treetops as they gathered more speed before streaking out up into the sky.
