Another raptory-hawky thing is this month’s quiz subject, and I know that everyone is excited about that! The wings are certainly obviously long, so ruling out vultures, eagles, long-winged buteos (such as Swainson’s and Ferruginous), and probably even harriers. Unfortunately, the quiz bird is streaked below, a feature not at all rare in raptory-hawky things, and the remiges (primaries and secondaries) are checkered with dark bits, also not at all rare in raptory-hawky things. Despite these features being widespread in those avian species with nasty, sharp talons, the quiz bird is showing more than enough features to identify it to species.

What species is represented here?
