Is this an immature Sharp-shinned Hawk?

Thank you everyone.  I would've never guessed immature Red-shouldered Hawk.  I was presuming accipiter based primarily on it's size and slender shape, not "chunky" like most buteos.  Besides, despite them (RSHA) being relatively common raptors in my area, they continue to elude me.  

People sometimes say Red-shouldered Hawks are more accipiter-like than most buteos.
