Raptor Identification – Help!

Mark Coffey photography raptor


I am not a raptor specialist and could use your help identifying this species.  This photo was taken in south-eastern Alberta grassland habitat.  Comments are appreciated…thank you in advance.


  1. It looks like the Red Tailed Hawks outside my window here in Texas, but I do not know if they range that far North.

    Thanks Stephanie!
    They do range that far north but I am unsure of whether it is a Red-tailed Hawk, a Ferruginous Hawk, or a Swainson’s Hawk.

    A little additional note: This desire is simply out of curiosity and not driven by a term of sale or anything of the sort.
