The combination of the orange barring on the belly and the black and white pattern on the wings and tail make this an adult Red-shouldered Hawk.  Accipiters have longer tails with wide gray and black bands and they lack the checkered pattern on the wings.

This is a red-shouldered hawk.

Note the shorter tail, cool white markings on the wing, and the reddish breast.
