I am certainly no expert on raptors, Robert, but it looks to me like some color morph of red-tailed hawk.

thanks Shalu. over at FM I've gotten one suggestion it is a Red-shouldered variant.
Not what I want to hear! I want someone to say it is a Sharp-skinned! That'd be a new one for me :)

So I googled images of immature Red-tailed hawks and Shalu I think you are on target!

I like they way the eagle looks into camera on the second shot as if to say, what can you do.

Are you sure they are not a comedy duo.

Me neither, but I agree. I think this is a juvenile, dark morph Red-tail.

Fork-tailed Drongos bring back some nice memories of SA. Love the eagle's expression in the second shot. He looks like he's just been startled.

Please help ID this raptor.
Sorry about the image quality, too far away I know.
One of those slam on the brakes, hop out of the vehicle and shoot as quickly as possible.

Maybe a Sharp-skinned? Coopers?
I tried to key it out but difficult.

Forget to mention, shot in New Mexico at Bosque del Apache.

Could be a Short-tailed Hawk. Definitely not a Sharp-shinned or Coopers.

Very nice, stunning imagery.:-)

Equally well fits the category "Birds in fight" as well as "Birds in flight".;-)a

Great action shot.

Black-necked stilt. Almost full frame, shot through a Dot Sight instead of view finder.

Nice shot!!...Very hard bird to get a decent BIF so well done.

BTW I just bought one of those red dot sights too last week from Brando.com . Havnt had a chance to use it yet as the sight rail to hotshoe attachment is loose so I needed to get another hotshoe adapter that I can tighten in the hot shoe and have found one on ebay and ordered it . Once thats arrived Im out there with the sight. Cant wait to use it now Ive seen this image :)

Cheers

Very mild weather means very few birds. Just a black-headed gull

I am confident it is not a Sharpy, even juvy's have broad dark bands on the tail etc.

It looks a lot like an immature dark morph Red Tail I once saw.

Short tailed would be quite a find, but I don't see the similarity in these images.
