Also note the barring on the flight feathers

Thanks, Liam. And isn't the light-colored "V" on the back a mark for Red-shouldered? I think I read that but haven't been able to find it.

I would take caution using that as a field mark. Most Buteos, particularly juvies, have some semblance of white markings on the scapulars in a similar pattern
