A "Western" Tail

Eric writes:  
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!

You guys did a great job following and finding the bird. I hope it stays around and you’re able to capture more shots. Thanks for sharing this picture.
