Red-tailed Hawk

Buteo jamaicensis

Description:

I think this lovely hawk is a youngster. It has a wonderful chocolate speckling in the belly band, but the tail has taken on a pale rufous shade.

Notes:

Spotted near utility pole #57 - close to a detention/retention pond in an office building complex in Kennesaw, GA
