Yes, the explanation is so helpful when there are several similar species in the same genus and how to distinguish between them. Most people just put in their suggestion and don't take the time to add the info that helps everyone else to see what they see. Do you agree that this one is also a red-tailed? https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/44...Thanks.
I am less than confident when id'ing hawks. Thanks so much for the id and for explaining it.
That belly band across its chest is the trademark of a Red Tailed Hawk. The striped underpart of the tail indicates it is a juvenile. Common hawks, yet regal! Nice shot.
This is a Hawk, but not sure if it is a red-tailed, red-shouldered, broad-winged, or a Cooper's hawk.
