Not sure about this Hawk...

Recommended Posts

The tail band is perfectly normal. While juvenile RLHAs have a generally dark distal half of the tail, there's usually a blacker subterminal band hidden in there, as illustrated by this bird. However, your bird's tail is typical of adult female RLHA, which usually sports an obvious black subterminal band with the occasional individual sporting one or two additional narrower tail bands (as here; note the dark eyes). Adult males typically exhibit one or more additional tail bands.

Yeah, nobody's getting that one.  :classic_dry:

Nope, googling John Grimes books that I didn't read doesn't help either. I get the sentiment but have never heard the expression.
