Thank you for this reference.  I have one on the way from Amazon for  
$11.20 with free shipping (had to buy another book for $25 order, but  
that's never a problem).

Yesterday I tried to id a utility line perched hawk.  It was red  
tailed size, but very  very light.  Its head was white except for  
dark, but not vivid, eye line.  Its breast was white except for some  
dark feathers not in discernible pattern.  When it flew and spread  
tail feathers I saw no color top or bottom.  Wings were brown with  
much white.   Light was very cloudy, late afternoon.  I'm guessing  
immature Krider's.  If I get to see it again, what should I look for?
