    Dark morph buteo

    This is a dark morph Swainson's Hawk? Contra Costa County, CA 3/23/18
  3. A friend and I saw the hawk, a buteo, in the attached photo at Bosque Del Apache in central New Mexico on Jan. 19th (2018). It was around 1:30 PM in the afternoon, temps around 55 F, and with a mild breeze. We have a good guess what it might be but are not certain enough to claim an ID. We thought we'd ask for input from the birding community (and won't say what we think so as not to bias the results). Sorry for the poor photo. It's the best we could get before it flew off. Thanks, amallen

    Buteo i.d.

    Going through some old photos, I have two poor shots of a hawk which flew overhead two years ago. I posted in my local bird society page, and they seemed to think it is a juvenile Broad-winged Hawk. Something bugs me though, and I want to ask about it. The tail bands don't seem right for an adult BW nor for a juvenile. They are more or less equal, and narrow, unlike the wide bands of the adult BW, and unlike the faint bands and wide bottom band of the juve. Second point, the shape of the wing tips, which are very blunt. In the photo where the bird is foreshortened, you can't tell so much, but in the other one you see a smooth rounded wing-tip (BW having four tips, giving a more pointed look from what I have studied up on...). No patagial bars, I rule out the Red-tailed Hawk, and the tail seemed proportionately too long...viewed through binos, as well as in the photo, and the bars on the tail not like a juve RT either. Anyway, that's all my take on it, correct anything I've said if I'm wrong, please! I'm here to learn. I am including the original shots and lighting-adjusted shots. The time was 10:45 on a September morning. I am in Nova Scotia, Canada. These were the best I could do with my camera (Canon Powershot).
  5. I saw this bird in Southern Ontario yesterday (2016-12-19). It is clearly not one of the 2 subspecies of RT normally seen locally (borealis or abieticola). I'm not familiar enough with western subspecies to make an assessment. Is there enough visible here to ID it down to the subspecies (it is a Western Red-tailed right ?). I could not get perfectly in focus pictures, it made 2 quick passes overhead and then was gone not to be seen again. Thanks in advance.

  6. Are the evenly spaced bands on the tail enough to say immature Broad-winged Hawk over Red-shouldered? St. Petersburg, FL 10/31/15

    Unknown Buteo

    Saw this hawk a few weeks back in Arkansas. Having a hard time nailing down an ID - I'm thinking a juvenile - any thoughts?

    Hawk in SW Ontario

    Hello, I am trying to distinguish what type of hawk I have found. It is often perched high, on tree tops and dead limbs, and appears to be nesting. It has a four note call, which it produces when it's perched. In flight, it's screech is similar to that of a red-tailed hawk, but less powerful and more whiny. Is it possible that this could be a juvenile red-tailed? Any help would be much appreciated!
  10. I took these pics today around 4:45 P.M. in Augusta, GA. I was birding the neighborhood when something flashed out of the corner of my eye. It was so high up, I put my binocs on it and thought small hawk or accipter, then got 4 quick pics before it flew off. It was gliding with its wings slightly pointed back at a very high altitude, (highest I have ever seen a bird be other than vultures), and was moving quickly SE. (Possible migrant?) Please help me out, as I need a 200th lifer!!!
  11. These large hawks were soaring above the hills in Vinales Valley, Pinar del Río, Cuba on 11th January 2013. Sorry for the bad quality of the picture, but are these just red-tailed hawks? Now back in Finnish winter and feels little bit chilly here.
  12. I got two pics of this hawk, in Georgia. It was flying all over my yard, alternatively circling and perching. From what I can tell it's a broad shouldered hawk? I see red tails fairly frequently, this guy seemed smaller, and had a striped and not red tail. I can't see any red on the shoulder in the picture. The picture quality for the perched shot is cause I took it through a spotting scope, and I don't really know how to do that well; it was spur of the moment.
