The images in this post come from the "not very good" folder. Consequently, they lend themselves to quiz material. Poor lighting, deep cropping, and other factors make identification of some of these birds challenging. I've numbered them 1 to 12. If you are interested, write down the number and the ID and then share your ID in the comments below. Even if you only attempt to ID a few it can be a fun exercise. I'll share my IDs in a few days.
All of these raptor images were captured in the state of Utah. If you can identify them trying adding the age or specific subspecies name. Hint: Some species and even the same bird may show up multiple times in the images below.
Merlin? Yes. But Taiga, Prairie, or intergrade?
