Description

Back and forth on id for this raptor...red tailed or ferruginous or other? The large bill and mostly white breast and body has me leaning towards B. regalis. Is that common in so. cal.? Doesn't have the dark leg feathering though.

I'm leaning towards a juvenile B. lineatus, the second picture shows a good profile of a red shoulder hawk, but I could be convinced otherwise. I don't think it impossible for B. regalis to be in that area, but I also don't think it's a common occurrence.
