  1. None of the accipiters have such striking white markings on wings. Additionally, any accipiter with barring below (thus, an adult) will have a dark crown contrasting more or less strongly with the face, unlike both Red-shouldered and Broad-winged hawks.

    This is an immature male Red-winged Blackbird almost completely molted into adult plumage.

    This is an immature male Red-winged Blackbird in formative plumage. Red-wingeds do little if any molt in late winter/spring. This bird will not see adult plumage until Jul-Aug. Note the black centers in the median coverts. Adults, at all times of year, have clean yellow greater coverts and lean red lesser coverts.
