Hawk Belly Band Wednesday

Rowan the red-tailed hawk's belly band.
Luta the red-tailed hawk's belly band.


We thought it would be fun to share some photos of the differences in plumage, and particularly the "belly bands", of two of our education winged ambassadors.  Both Rowan and Luta are 2015 hatches, so they are about the same age.  However, as you can see, their plumage is very different, which is typical for red-tailed hawks.  Read about Luta and Rowan on their web pages.
