Almost Instant Replay
I didn't identify this bird in the previous post. I just thought it was a juvenile red-shouldered hawk and didn't think much more about it. But on Tuesday morning some friends on Facebook shared a link to a new program at the Cornell website that lets you upload bird photos and help you identify the species. I thought it sounded pretty interesting, so I picked this photo to upload.
Well, guess what, this is not a red-shouldered hawk at all. It's a juvenile red-tailed hawk light morph. What a wonderful surprise that was. Check out that website. It is truly remarkable.
