Adult, probably subspecies velox
Photo by Lisa W

Includes White-breasted Hawk; Rufous-thighed Hawk; Plain-breasted Hawk

Identification

One of the smallest of the North American accipiters, at a length of 25-35cm (10-14"), and wingspan 51-71cm (20-28"). The females account for the high end of these size estimates; the usual rule of sexual dimorphism is reversed in Accipiters.
Iris color ranges from red, through orange to yellow depending on age and subspecies. Younger birds have brown or grey irides

Distribution

Occupies a broad band across Alaska and Canada in the summer, except for the arctic latitudes. Year-round in the central western U.S. from the Canadian border to Mexico and south through Mexico and to South America.
Northern migrants (mainly A. s. velox) can be found wintering throughout the U.S. and Mexico, excepting the colder climes of the central and eastern states. The more southerly subspecies are sedentary.
