Juvenile Red-Tailed Hawk
This Western Juvenile (the Eastern Juveniles look different) was both active and photogenic atop Camelback Mountain. There's enough variation among Red-Tails too that multiple postings seems more than appropriate.
These are also among the first in-flight shots I've been able to capture.
When mature, this young hawk's tail will have reddened, her back will have become a darker brown, and her eyes will turn a rusty orange.
