I'm slightly uncertain what I have here. Way up in the mountains. Is this a red tail? Instead of taking off I was lucky and it landed in the pine close to me, allowing a few pictures.

Thanks for helping and looking!

Yes, it is a RT. In the old days we called this a melanistic RT.

Very cool perched shots here Craig... I like #2 for the head angle.

Cool catch Craig, I've never seen a RT with colors like that before.

Thanks Merlinator!

It was a dark, rainy day in the woods which made it even more interesting to me! I probably lucked out because of the thunder and lightning keeping the bird down low.

I've updated for a better description...

Good to see. Interesting plumage color. I like being able to see his eyebrow, nice detail.

Thanks again guys!!

The bird flew to the best possible perch location for me under the circumstances and was polite enough to show off his plumage too! That stuff only happens once or twice every couple years to me.

Look up Rufous morph Red-tailed Hawk and see if that doesn't match your bird. Great shots, Craig.

I see what you're saying Chuck! You are right on. Now I need to change the title again!

I also found a very informative PDF on these morphs too. "Advances in Raptor Identification; Dark Red-tailed Hawks" by Jerry Ligouri.



Thanks again everyone!!
