Oak snag at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, southwest Washington State
Thanks to Doren B and Jellis for the help with the ID!
Red-shouldered Hawk. Note how 'bulky" this bird appears and the very heavy barring on the breast and belly. The markings on a Sharp-shinned or Coopers Hawk would be more finely detailed.
Definite Red-shouldered juvenile
