Answered Bird Identification Question

While It is true that I have answered my bird ID question to my satisfaction, AND found an excellent online guide to identification I am really curious to know what you are using for your online IDs.

My rufus colored hawk was, as I guessed, a red shouldered hawk. And It felt good to identify it from previous study of my birding guides.

The second hawk was most likely an immature red-shouldered hawk, having been seen so close to the other bird and so similar in size and body shape. Its eye stripe was distinctive and I found that interesting.

So, my current and best online source is Cornell University online. And I am not surprised. For decades they have been the bird experts. And it is terrific to be ranking so well with them in the search engines.
