Hi Guys,

I’m reading the comments. Very good information. I appreciate it. I’m guessing looking at this guy which was in a different area, it’s the same bird (red tail)

The wings look to have more red or color on leading edges. I’m sorry if I can’t figure it out lol.

So, the very first one is not then a Red tail, but a Red Shoulder? I can’t find my bird book, I had a nice one. I looked at pictures online and thier underside looks a lot darker, so guessing this one is a young one then.

Hi Tommy, it is clear these are not the same bird. Look closely at the belly, the 3rd image of the perching hawk shows the belly band that is a hallmark of a Red Tail,. but more importantly, it is completely different markings from the bird in your first image.


Yes, I’m looking at it. I try hard to get better photo’s, just really hard when It’s all at a drop of a hat that I see these guys. I need better than 400MM too. I appreciate the help in IDing them.

This one is an adult Red-tailed hawk. Belly band, clear breast, dark patagial marks, and rusty tail. The dark trailing edge of the wing in secondary flight feathers also helps to mark this as an adult.

The original bird you posted in this thread is an immature Red-shouldered hawk. The plumage is similar to immature Broad-winged, and can cause a lot of confusion. The original photos you posted show five elongated outer primaries. Broad-winged hawks only have four elongated outer primaries.
