Red-Shouldered Hawk - Western Mass

Recommended Posts

Between the wing structure and the tail pattern, this is a Broad-winged. If you look closely at that first shot, you can see that all of the primaries are paler than the secondaries -- this is typical of some young Broad-wings (and all young Red-tails), whereas Red-shouldered only show part of the outer primaries as pale.
