Kriders RT vs Immature something else

Recommended Posts

No pic.  Two (amateur) observers.  Just got a quick glimpse in passing:  low flying raptor, roadside field, coastal Alabama 01/19/2018. Looked like a Buteo.  Conspicuous, rather wide, white bands on dorsal side of wings toward tips.   Kriders (confirmed) have been spotted by others in county Oct-Dec 2109.

Need more details about the bird's appearance - size, shape, more about plumage. Rough-legged Hawks and Ferruginous Hawks also show white panels on the top of the wings near the tip, although they'd probably both be very unlikely there (I don't know anything about the birds of Alabama, just an assumption). Normal Red-tailed Hawks (especially juveniles) can also show this but usually less so.
