not sure which one of the many hawks it is
This looks like a Red-shouldered Hawk. Florida adults are often quite pale compared to other regions. This looks just like the picture of the Florida adult in my Sibley Guide to Birds.
Actually it was the same person twice but yea I would list it as that if I were you!
ok I see the red shouldered often, but this guy had a slightly different look to it, thanks to you both , so do I list this as Red Shouldered?
This is the Florida subspecies which looks much paler than the more medium colored eastern subspecies and the very heavily orange-colored California subspecies. Nice shot! This along with the Red-tailed Hawk are probably the two most common hawks in the southeast.
