Considering Zone-tailed Hawk

Recommended Posts

This fellow was flying around in my area this early afternoon, 12 May, here in San Antonio. He had been closer in, but by the time I grabbed my camera he was further away. I know not the best pics, but from what I can tell, the darker shoulders on the underwing (patagials? Trying to learn my terminology) and I can see some pattern on the white colored parts, the darker edge along the wing feather edges and the tail coloration is what is making me think Zone-tailed. I have an earlier pic of the same bird that is closer, but it is blurry. You can see the tail alright, but not clear. This would be about the third time I have seen this bird in my area. What is unique at this point, our area isn't known to be within the range for Zone-tails.
