9 March 2006 - mature NG


This bird happens to be mature. From the back I referred to this bird as short tailed. From the front it is not short tailed. UA at James Rodgers way, my first visit to UA.

This bird happens to not be a goshawk also!

how can you tell from that photo??? Its all black, there is no way to identify it based on color. and from what i see, it has too broad of shoulders, and body in general, its head is too much of a dome, its tail is too short. Question: Have you seen a red tailed hawk? right before dusk? or just relaxing? hmm.. gee... i wonder... Dont they look similiar to your proposed... 'goshawk'???

oh and the reason you thought it was short tailed, is because its RED TAIL (or similiar). not a GOSHAWK.
