Red-Shouldered Kite

Buteo lineatus

Description:

Small hawk, possibly a juvenile. These hawks' upper parts are dark with pale spots and they have long yellow legs. Juvenile red-shouldered hawks are most likely to be confused with juvenile broad-winged hawks, but can be distinguished by their long tails, crescent-like wing markings, and a more flapping

Habitat:

Found in a park in Savannah, posed nicely!

Notes:

It did pose nicely! Looks more similar to the red-shouldered hawk, Mel.
