Immature Red-tailed Hawk?

Recommended Posts

I agree with young Red-shouldered.  Harriers have longer wings with a different underwing pattern and a smaller head with a unique face shape.  Young Cooper's Hawks have different tail, back, and head patterns, bright yellow eyes, longer tails, and shorter wings.  Red-tailed Hawks have shorter tails, dark patagial marks, and they're usually bulkier with larger bills.
