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

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.

Excellent shots, Doc. Not a hawk that I recognize.

What an amazing capture of the stilt. He fills the frame and really is sharp.

Thank you for your compliments, Mike!

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

Thank you, Clipper. If the Dot Sight adapter uses the screw to tighten, it has a big drawback: everytime you re-mount it, you have to re-calibrate it, because it inevitably shifts a little during tightening of the screw. Better to get one that slides in the hotshoe VERY TIGHTLY. I got one from ebay originally for my Canon. I found it fits perfectly on Sony as well. Some people I know bought the Olympus dot sight made for cameras, it can mount on the hotshoe of many camera brands.

Mike, a summation of all inputs from various sources tell me that it is a Juvenile Western Red-Tailed Hawk Dark morph.
So that's what I'm going with :)

Not sure that I agree with that, Robert. Here is a dark morph red-tailed hawk that I shot about a year ago. There was a juvenile in the same area that was just as dark as the older bird, but without a red tail. I realize this is not a BIF shot, but I wanted to show a dark morph red-tailed hawk, and I don't have any in flight.

Very nice shot of pintail courtship behavior. In pintail courtship, there is always one female in the group.
