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.

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.
