Ferruginous Hawk

I think I attached the wrong pics to my earlier note about raptors. Here are two pics of the dark, red-phase Ferruginous Hawk I found perched on a utility pole today.

Those are the same … not a Ferruginous …. there would be feathering all the way down the legs to the feet.

ok. thank you for the correction. Every time I go out looking, I see different color phases of red-tails. And they are all very different than the redtails I saw over 25 years in Pennsylvania and Vermont.

He was nice enough to hold up his leg for you and show you his bare lower shin :-)

Yes they come in a huge range of colors within 50 miles of Boise I have seen some so dark they border on black and some so light they are almost white.

I saw that Cliff Weisse in his reply called this one an intermediate morph and why.
