 Harlan's and Krider's Red-tailed Hawk subspecies (Buteo jamaicensis)

The 13 subspecies of Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) inhabit North ,Cental and south America. Six of the subspecies can be found in North America. Several of the subspecies exhibit different color phases or "morphs" as they are referred to. The dark morph, rufous (reddish brown) morph and light morph of the Red-tailed Hawk may all be seen in the upper Midwest.

The Harlan's subspecies (B. j. harlani) is found during the breeding season primarily from southwestern Canada into southeastern Alaskal, it winters from Nebraska and Kansas, to Texas and northern Louisiana. The dark phase of the Harlan's subspecies (top below ) is dark with banded undertail coverts; the light phase is similar to the Krider's supspecies but with darker wings and a malar stripe.

The Krider's subspecies (B. j. krideri) (middle below) has a pinkish or white head, no malar stripe (from the back corner of the beak down), and light orange tail. It can be found during the breeding season from southern portions of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and extreme western Ontario, south to south-central Montana, Wyoming, western Nebraska, and western Minnesota. In winter, it occurs from South Dakota and southern Minnesota south to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana.
