Hi DerrickLK...Wonderful of you to create a mission for Idaho wildlife...but please either use your own photo for the mission you've created or get Jeff's permission to use his...you are not allowed to randomly use an image in PN. Thanks!

Jeff, it definitely looks like a Red-Tail...they have different variations in their plumage, but they commonly have a distinct belly band and the obvious red tail (yours definitely has both!) Beautiful shot!!

Thanks Steve - we have numerous hawks in this area so I'm never certain.

It looks like a Redtail Hawk to me but I'll let the more advanced birders on here confirm that. I'm a newbie to birds. Nice shot!
