No problems taking shots of a bird through trees. Also, what bird is this?

So this morning I was walking with my daughter when I saw what looked like a pterodactyl swooping down. But I scared it off. I decided to take a picture because it was larger than the birds I normally see. I used my 70-300G and my A99ii. Didnt have a problem focusing through trees.

I remember someone saying it was an issue on the A77ii and Tamron 70-300 SP.

I know people here know a lot about birds, what kind of bird is this? I know these arent the best shots, as I typically only take pics of people or cars.
