    Description

    The Zone-tailed Hawk (Buteo albonotatus) might well be dubbed "the Great Pretender" because it so closely resembles the ubiquitous Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura) in appearance and behavior as to be frequently mistaken for it. In the border regions where it lives, it may be confused as well with another "Mexican" raptor, the Common Black-Hawk (Buteogallus anthracinus). In fact, a nesting pair of hawks in Harding County was initially reported as the northern-most breeding record for Common Black-Hawk, but subsequently identified correctly as Zone-tailed Hawk (Bohl and Traylor 1958).
