Hawk in South Central Idaho

Recommended Posts

SY Red-tail. You can see the strong dark trailing edge on the new, inner primaries contrasting with the weaker edge on the older secondaries. Ferruginous never develop such a strong trailing edge and the outer primaries only have small dark tips. On the right side of the bird you can also see a couple of adult Red-tail type tail feathers.
