Can't help you with the ID, but those are some great shots! (It does sort of look like a Copper's hawk I've seen here, but I'm not sure).

Actually note the banded primaries and secondaries, streaking on the body is more evenly patterened, does not form a bellyband lIke Red-tail does, bill is small, bright yellow cere (juv RT is pale blue-green-yellow) and slightly darker eye than juvenile Red-tail would have. This is a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk.

Beautiful bird and beautiful photos, I am jealous.

Great explanation of the differences between the two and I agree with the ID.

Nice captures as well. ;)

Great! Thank you very much for the help, I would have never figured out the difference. He's been visiting the same tree right outside my window for about two weeks. I've found a different vantage point to have mostly foliage in the background but it's a little further away. I also put a short video on YouTube if anyone's interested. http://www.youtube.com …Fp7VK3y4&featur​e=youtu.be (external link)

Great shooting, Thomas; a beautifully captured bird. And a great identification description from Jerry.
