I saw a hawk across the street from the house, but took it to be a Coopers hawk. I'm not sure which one it is, but I'll take your word for it.
ID'd from post in ID this bird from Birding Group.:

That leaves Buteo spp. The very pale bars on the tail contrasting with much thicker dark bars, the rusty on the back, and the evenly streaked breast suggest Red-shouldered hawk (Buteo lineatus), immature.
We have a pair of these hawks living in a pine tree, they are here year round, this one of their babies.


To everyone else, thanks a lot for your compliments and comments. Hands shaking really bad today or I'd thank you all individually.

It does look like he was posing just for you! That is a great portrait.

Great capture. TFS. Hope you'll x-post in the yard birds thread. (Doesn't matter if it's someone else's yard!)

Thanks, Jer! I'm pretty proud of this shot, too.

Thanks to you too, ChristianRock! He must have because I got front view, side view and back view, before he flew off.

Urs, thanks!

I'll tell you all, I was standing almost straight under him and I had to back the lens off 300mm to get him in the full frame, this was shot at 170mm.. He didn't fly off, so I took several more shots to show tail feathers, and his back, for identification purposes.
