Exquisite Harlan's Red-tail!

Brian Sullivan passed these photos on to me of a bird found by Robert McMorran thinking I'd like to see them….and all I have to say is "WOW."

Check out this gorgeous juvenile Harlan's Red-tail that Robert photographed (click photos to enlarge). The topside plumage is intricate, just a great looking bird and an excellent example of another variation in the endless variation of Red-tailed Hawks! I have seen a few with heavily "spangled" topsides (below) but none with quite so much as this. Anyway, thought I'd share it with Robert's permission, thanks Robert!

THAT is a nice looking hawk! I love the variation among Red-tailed Hawks, but I really enjoy seeing what the next Harlan's Hawk will present.
