On our closing net run yesterday we caught the first intergrade Northern Flicker I've ever seen and only the second in the last decade here. This is a hybrid between the eastern yellow-shafted subspecies and the western red-shafted subspecies of Northern Flicker.
Despite having trapped hawks for a couple of seasons my only two in hand experiences with Red-shouldered Hawks has been at songbird banding stations. My first was this spring in California and my second was just last week here at Manomet. Another young bird, of course.
