Well yes, there is different colour morphs by area of Red Tails. BC coast has very dark brown ones, and Scarlet, who was found in Victoria BC is from the great plains, shes a Krider's Red Tail.
I think that yes, after you have successfully "released" the bird, you can have any bird. Here in Canada, you have to wait certain years to get different birds, like for instance, you have to at least be a fully licensed falconer for at least 5 years before you can get a Peregrine from the wild. I'm not really that sure about US laws though.
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
