Ferruginous Hawk?

Immature Red-tailed Hawk, actually. See the belly band and dark alula.

That's not actually the alula.  This picture of a Red-tail shows both alulae, with a bonus king snake.  The alula goes outboard from the "wrist", but the patagial mark is inboard of it.  I think the left alula may actually be visible in "Art's" picture as a slight notch along the leading edge.

While I'm at it, I'll say that Ferruges do show up in central N.M., but your chances are much better on the eastern plains.
