Thought this might be a Swainson's Hawk, but thanks to Ashley for identifying the red-tailed hawk!
Good luck with the Campus Wild Project!
Nice one, good zoom!
Adam, great photo!!
Awesome, thanks Ashley!
Swainson's hawks have a bib on the chest, and they are a western species. You can tell this is a red-tailed hawk by the spotted belly band, mottled white shoulder patches, and the red tail.
