Re: What kind of hawk is this?

Looks like a young redtail just molting out into adult feathers...but I'm not sure. Now I have a friend that's a falconer...but lives far away from me. I'll see what I can figure out.

It would help to know where it is at and the time of the year, btw.

Looks like a Cooper's Hawk but could be a Sharp Shinned Hawk.

Not a Red Shouldered Hawk. No red shoulders a and too many bands on the tail for a Western RS.
