Default Harris x Red Tail Hybrid

I have just read this article and am quite amazed that a RT has bred with a Harris and produced offspring suitable for hunting.

What other bizarre crosses have people heard about and what would they be like in the field.

What would it be called?

lol, my fav the fru-tail (ferruginouse x red tail). Someone on the forum should buy one an do some seriouse hunting. I'd buy the male but I dont think his owner would sell him lol. Flying around 2lb 5, very aerobatic, smart, agile and obidient birds. Scatty when you first train them and preferable to be a one person bird with lots of manning, attention and just general messing. Love to sun themselves!

There's a pic of a harris/ferrug sumwhere, Anton had one, great birds from the sounds of it lol.

I always thought Harris Hawks were brave.......but humping a ferrug is a bit much for me.

Trying to find information on spar / gos hybred. No I don't want one but I am interested to find out how they performed compared to either parent hawk. I think the Germans have bred them.

OF.

Now this interests me very much.
At the very least the birds are both of the same genus.
