Juv. Hawk I.D.

Recommended Posts

I agree with birdbrain22.  Red-tailed Hawks are much bulkier with shorter tails and bigger bills. They have a band of blotchy streaks across the belly and mostly unmarked breast unlike your bird which shows nice thin, even streaking all the way down from the neck to the belly.  Young Red-taileds also have much thinner banding on the tail.
