It looks like an odd pairing up with a "Harlin's" Red-tailed hawk matching up with a regular colored Red-tailed. A Harlin's is almost black on top with light coloring showing when flying above you.
Its mate is a light colored, near a light-morph. They are in the Burton area near Rexburg.
Here are two more Red-tails that show the different coloration of the Red-tails the migrate through the area.
On Tuesday last week this Bald eagle was being harassed by a pair of Kestrels near Sand Creek Ponds north of St. Anthony.
Also on Tuesday from St. Anthony to Sand Creek area there were 17 moose working their way across the desert.
Right with the moose, there were over 100 deer also migrating to the high country. With two light winters in a row, the mule deer population is growing. Here is one of the few bucks still wearing their head-gear.
A large flock of sandhill cranes joined 108 Trumpeter swans on the grain field planted and left standing for migrating birds at Sand Creek.
Then on Saturday I found my first Burrowing owls of the year. There were three pair from Roberts to Hamer that had moved in since last Monday.
It is the wildness of Southeastern Idaho that inspires me.
