Short-tailed Hawk Light Morph 20100108

Note the reddish tint of tail-- caused me to take close look at wings (no patagail markings) and belly (no streaks) unlike Red-tailed Hawk. Note darker secondaries, white base of primaries, white wing linings, and rather pointed wings, characteristics of Short-tailed Hawk. First one I have been able to photograph. Circling over West Miramar ESL. Visit blog.rosyfinch.com
