ID Help

I recently corrected some of the IDs on this blog as I had somehow flipped some attributes around in my mind. ID on these birds can be difficult and we are often using our "best guess" at a given time. Lighting, angle, and camera shot quality/capability can definitely make the task tougher. The important thing is that, primarily thanks to our BOGs, we are seeing these beautiful hawks, period! For those of you who do like to guess at IDs and don't find it too frustrating, here is a picture that may help:
