It is a Red-shouldered Hawk's secondary flight feather.

This is definitely a left wing feather... a secondary flight fleather I believe. But in order to get possible ID, a bit more info is needed:
1) Where was it found, specifically? Suburban backyard? River? Forest? City? (Different birds are found in different habitats, so this would help me narrow down my options considerably.)
2) How long is it? (This would tell me the SIZE of the bird, which would narrow down the choices even further. )
