Sacramento, CA

Welcome to Whatbird!!

Definitely a Red-shouldered Hawk. I agree with @Melierax , it looks like an adult. I think the reason @AlexHenry asked if it was in Fla is that it looks very light, which is typical of Red-shouldered Hawks in Fla. I was raised in Fla and now live in Sacramento, and your bird is lighter looking than ones I typically see around here. Some of it could be the lighting, it does appear to be washed out somewhat.

I wonder if that's due to the camera's sensors compensating for the close, dark tree trunk that takes up about 60% of the frame.
