Krider's!!!

A recent post on the Idaho listserv of a Ferruginous Hawk made me think to write this entry. A quiz photo of a juvenile light-morph Ferruginous Hawk was posted and the possibility of it being a Krider's Red-tailed Hawk was discussed. A common ID problem....I think I even show the two side-by-side in "Hawks From Every Angle".

I won't go into detail on how to separate the 2 (I posted a short response on the site), I just wanted to post 3 Krider's Red-tailed Hawks here showing how pale and lightly marked underneath they can be (adults on left and center, juvenile molting on right. Bird on right by Brian Sullivan.
