Northern Red-tailed Hawk? in Help Me Identify a North American Bird Posted March 11, 2023 Images captured in January last year in NW Missouri. Another one of those immature (yellow eyed) Red-tailed Hawks with a brick red tail. I think I originally called this one an Eastern, but now have 2nd thoughts. Because of the "blobby" underside, and light base of the tail, I'm going with a young (maybe light morph)_ Northern abieticola. What do you guys think? Also, because several of my recent Red-tailed Hawks were misidentified (by me), I'm now re-thinking many of my earlier calls. Expect a bunch of older, some maybe even seen before, pics to be posted for ID confirmation.
