An adult Zone-tailed Hawk (found by Anthony Hewetson and Kathryn Brautigam at 9:25 and photographed by Anthony Hewetson and Alan Livingston from 10:21 to 10:26) was at Clapp Park in Lubbock this morning. As photographs were taken of the bird from far, far below we had the identification confirmed by Dr. Clint Boal and Katheryn Watson, two raptor biologists at TTU, before sending this post.
This is the third record of the species for my region: one in Terry County in 2010, one in Lubbock County earlier this year, and this bird.
Photographs will be uploaded to my eBird report a little later today.
