Would like some feedback or confirmation on this one. I am thinking dark-morph juvi Harlan's.
Juvenile - because it lacks subterminal bands on retrices and remiges.
Harlan's - because it was a very dark bird with white speckles on throat, belly, and back, and...
this from HawkWatch Int'l website: "Dark-morph Juvenile ranges from completely streaked below to solidly dark. Juvenile typically has outer primaries banded at the tips, and tail tip shows "spiked" look "
This bird displays the outer primaries banded at the tips, but unless the tail is worn, I don't think I can make out a "spiked" look.
