What bird is this?

9 posts in this topic

I was at Reimers Ranch in Spicewood, Texas today and this bird flew over. It is not my best picture, but I am hoping someone can identify this bird.

I don't click on links, but the one pic that's showing is definitely a Red-tailed Hawk.

My vote is on red-tail. Any possibility this could be a Fuentes juvi? Sure is light.

Not a juvie, it has a red tail. This bird's color is well within the range I see daily.

Given the location, fuertes is the expected breeding subspecies, but I don't know how you'd rule out wintering borealis -- we get birds this light up here in Illinois every year.
