Misidentified Hawk

Recommended Posts

This fellow was spotted back in February of 2019 here in San Antonio on Lackland AFB. I compared pictures and came up with what I thought he was (I had only been birding a couple of months), but now that I have learned more, I am not so sure about my initial identification. At the time, I focused on the teardrop chocolate drops on his breast. I don't want to say what I thought it was or what I think it may be now. I would like to get your folks opinions - kind of a check on learning for me. 

Thanks folks,

Thanks very much folks. I have some checklist to go back and correct. I had come to the conclusion that it was probably a juvenile, but was thinking possibly red-shouldered. Still learning and having fun doing it.
