Got a great look at this hawk in perfect morning light today and assumed red-shouldered, but on editing now I'm not totally convinced. Red Shouldered and Cooper's are the most common in this area followed by red tail, but this fellows color and streaking is off a bit and the eyes are so dark in good light for a juvenile red shoulder. I need a sanity check. The way it took off I didn't get a good look at tail and wings were a blur. thanks in advance
Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could id these birds. They were sitting on the same tree with the darker one sitting above and shouting or calling down to the other one. I was wondering if they were related or if they were not and were arguing with each other.
I saw a Great Blue Heron fighting an unidentified hawk in the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge on the Texas Gulf Coast between Galveston and Freeport on Nov 16. The Heron is pretty intense. But, I can't ID the hawk. There is a light white line above the eyes, but the winter plumage isn't very distinct. Opinions are welcome. Here are various views of the two birds.
