Buteo lineatus extimus
Beautiful hawk perches on a limb, ignoring the automobiles in the background!!
This hawk flies around the naturally wooded neighborhood looking for snakes and other meals..
Sorry I can't identify the hawk, whether a red-tail or red-shoulder...it was smaller than others I have seen here so it might also be a juvenile? THANKS LIAM and everyone else for the ID of this as a red-shouldered (juvenile) hawk-much appreciated!!
