This morning, while out birding with Aidan Rominger, we came across this "Western" Red-tailed Hawk. We first saw it in flight and eventually tracked it down while perched. This bird is a rufous, or intermediate morph of the western subspecies (B. J. Calurus) of Red-tailed Hawk.

I'll be hoping to get some flight shots if this bird sticks around!
