Yesterday (3.2.18) while driving on the Samish Flats (Skagit County), north of the East 90, I spotted an unusual perched Red-tailed Hawk. The bird had a streaked white breast and a dark belly. A closer look revealed white spectacles. Harlan’s, perhaps. I needed a good look and a photo of the tail. My experience with Harlan’s is that they are very shy. If I had set up a tripod, the bird would have flown. Yet the bird seemed quite comfortable where it was, so I settled in to try for hand held videos from inside the car. It took an hour, but the bird finally did a tail stretch and video was running at the time. The whitish tail confirmed Harlan’s. Referring to Brian Wheeler’s Raptors of Western North America , I believe this bird is what the author calls a light intermediate morph.
