Dark Morph Immature Swainson's Hawk

Milpitas (Bay Area), California, USA 5/17/16

 

I have never seen a hawk with such heavy banding and striking underside coloration. Thanks all for the ID help. After checking several pictures, this hawk clearly matches a heavily barred immature dark morph Swainson's.
