Another Northern Red-tailed Hawk?

Recommended Posts

This adult was also seen January 2022 in NW Missouri.  It was in the same location (give or take a mile or two) as the immature Northern abieticola identified here yesterday.  For the same reasons as the immature bird, I'm calling this one a Northern as well.  The last pic is the best view I could get of the upper tail.

I would have said it might be a Northern but I wasn't sure.  Chipperati knows more about Northern Red-tails than I do, having actually identified some, so I didn't have anything to add.

One thing I am sure of is that some Red-tails outside the breeding season, especially juveniles, can't be identified to subspecies.
