    Comments: Rare in Cochise County. Probably a dark-morph juvenile, I watched the bird f or about five minute as it was approaching, the bird had uniform dark upper side, including the tail, without tapered or pointed wings, not a Ferruginous Hawk. From the underside, the wing linings, and body was uniform dark, and in proper light, and angle, the wrist were slightly darker, with no comma in the wing. Primary tips were dark bordered with lighter colored primary shafts, and secondaries were darker than the primary shafts, giving the impression of light windows. The underside of the tail wasn’t light or dark, it was brown with a gray-brown band, almost to the back of the tail. The bird was flying about fifty feet above the ground, when it reached the open grassy field where we were, it started hovering above the field, over the next few minutes it stopped to hover seven more times. I have seen other Buteos kite or hover, but it is usually wind aided, and there was no wind. This bird also hovered with tail pointed straight down, ang legs dangling, I have only seen Rough-legged Hawk hover like this.
    I will try to get back with a camera, to photograph this bird.
