Can you identify these two birds?

I've been listening to Grateful Dead shows all morning on my iPod in anticipation of the Dead show we're going to tomorrow night at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. We're going with our friends Dave & Meg- Meg of Puppies Foster fame :)
Steve did a great job of finding artwork for all of his albums on iTunes so I'm always checking out the screen while listening to my iPod—the 4th generation Nano has a nice big screen for that. I find the artwork for this show (6/7/70 at the Fillmore West, San Francisco) particularly interesting since the handbill features images of two birds.
One is a hawk and the other looks like a gull. Anyone want to take a stab at it?
Or, even better- anyone going to any of the shows on this tour?

I hope you enjoy the show.-Back in the 80's some of my friends were really into the dead. I enjoyed some of their live concert tapes.-I would have enjoyed them more if they were of higher quality.-I remember one guy who had literally hundreds of dead concert tapes.-The only time I saw then was when they toured with Dylan in the early 80's I think.-

@Larry- it's good to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by. The show on Saturday was great- they played Terrapin Station, which is my fav. Grateful Dead song so I was really happy. That must be a great memory of seeing them play with Dylan.
