My neighborhood red-shouldered hawk This guy (gal?) hangs out in my neighborhood and stalks my feeder from time to time.  This one is a juvenile based on the coloring- I'd love it if someone could chime in on that. Buteo lineatus,Fall,Geotagged,Red-shouldered Hawk,United States Click/tap to enlarge

My neighborhood red-shouldered hawk

This guy (gal?) hangs out in my neighborhood and stalks my feeder from time to time. This one is a juvenile based on the coloring- I'd love it if someone could chime in on that.

  1. This page has a gallery with examples of adults and juveniles:

    Still, it looks quite complex for this bird, as there's several races. Males and females seem to differ mostly in their size and weight, hardly their appearance from what I've read.

The Red-shouldered Hawk is a medium-sized hawk. Its breeding range spans eastern North America and along the coast of California and northern to northeastern-central Mexico. Red-shouldered Hawks are permanent residents throughout most of their range, though northern birds do migrate, mostly to central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation.
