p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Raptors - Large And Small


Spent another day hoping to still find some Snowies. No luck, but there were raptors galore. One of my favorite raptors, the American Kestrel showed up in all her glory. I next viewed a large raptor that I identified as a juvenile Red-tail hawk, but I had some issues on the ID. The Red-tails I located in the past had a pale area on its upper chest followed by brown spotting. This raptor had spotting all over the chest. Can I get some help in identifying the bird? Thanks in advance.

C&C Welcome as always.

Thanks for the kind words, and especially for introducing me to Levels, Lil! Yes, I used levels on all the photos in this thread, and the "Lone Eagle".

Like your Kestrels, Gene. I was waiting for someone to chime in on the ID, but.. I'll take my shot. It's not a Red-tail. They have dark feathers on the leading edge of the under wing from the body to the "elbow." That is seen in all Red-tails except the dark phases. This bird looks like a juvenile Red-shouldered hawk, which has the under wing coverts changing to pale orange. Some expert can verify or correct me. Thanks for posting.
