Zone-tailed hawk (Buteo albonotatus)

The zone-tailed hawk is a sleek, blackish raptor of arid foothills and canyons in the southwestern U.S. These birds have an intriguing similarity to turkey vultures—they fly with their wings slightly raised and occasionally rock back and forth as the vultures do. Their lightly barred flight feathers even create a two-toned effect similar to the vulture’s wing pattern. While this could be a coincidence, it’s been suggested that zone-tailed hawks may mimic the relatively harmless turkey vulture in order to fool their prey of birds, mammals, and lizards.
