Telling Juvenile from Adult Red-tailed Hawks

27 February 2015

I want to approach this blog post differently than I usually do...I have posted 2 composite images of Red-tailed Hawks. One composite is of adult birds, the other is of juvenile birds. Instead of me telling which ones are the adults and juveniles and why, I would love to hear what everyone else thinks, and have you age the birds based on what you have learned, I think it will be more fun this way. The information is out there in books and within blog posts (some I have written) about the differences in the ages, but I think it would be valuable to everyone to hear others share what they have learned...and for people to look closely at the birds themselves.

Comment away!!!
