Young Red-tail poor substitute for a Snowy

I went looking for Snowy Owls again today in the Holland Marsh, but was not successful.   I had to settle for this immature Red-tailed Hawk.   The photos above may lead one to think these were two different birds, but lighting and shooting angles can produce many results.   This was a small bird for a Red-tailed Hawk...probably no bigger than a large Cooper's Hawk...and its hunting skills left much to be desired.
