If you don’t want to learn the differences, there is an alternative A93F30AF-09E5-4EAB-B5ED-5D8A1E56BCD2.gif.ab1f5491c9e1ac4cb570323fd0902ea8.gif

Seriously though, this has been a really good incentive to learn the more subtle field marks for a bunch of species. 

Haha I decided, but I feel like I'm gonna be wrong for some reason.

Note the long legs.

Are you suggesting this is a Crane Hawk?¬†ūü•ī

Thank you for your submissions!!

This week's bird is a Common Black Hawk! This species is superficially similar to Zone-tailed Hawk, there are some differences in the tail pattern and the wings are broader.

This photo was taken in Maricopa County, Arizona on May 17th. 

Those who guessed Common Black Hawk get 3 points. Anyone who guessed any species in the family Accipitridae gets 1 point. 1 additional point is awarded to those who guessed adult. Sex cannot be determined from this photo.

Here's the 10/22/21 scoreboard.
