Check the tail pattern, it's a Red-tailed.


Not sure how I missed that. I'll blame it on being on the phone for now

Weird pattern on the underparts, with the scattering of black feathers trying to be a belly-band?  If you're on Facebook, the people at the Red-tailed Hawks of the U.S. group might like to see this.

Thank you! I posted on FB Raptor ID group, they said it’s a freshly molted adult Eastern Red Tailed (b j borealis) - apparently the NJ/NY region has a lot of these more colorful and heavily marked specimens.
