Wow! I love mysterious raptors. I can understand the
confusion with Brown Falcon and Hobby, however I agree
with Greg. The tail and wings are very Brown
Goshawkish - not to mention a possible yellow eye (?).
Size in comparison to the surroundings and the
proportion of the head to body makes me think it`s a
male and the colour, pre-adult. Described behaviour is
also consistent with a Brown Goshawk.

Nice Pics.
