Indeed a Red-tailed Hawk. The dark leading edge of the wings (patagials) are diagnostic along with the slight belly band. Nice shots Bob.

It's an adult Red-tailed hawk. I'm curious if you have any other images? Especially shots showing the top of the tail?

Just going to assume this is an adult Eastern Red-tailed hawk. The banded primaries have me curious. Wish I could see the top of the tail.

Beekeeper, are you thinking it might be an immature bird? It is possible that it might be an immature bird even with the dark eyes. It’s not always a guarantee. We really need a tail shot to confirm.

No it's an adult Red-tailed hawk. It has a couple of generations of adult secondaries and adult primaries. The banded outer primaries are what have me interested in seeing the tail.

Do you remember anything about the upper side of the tail. Just plain red, or was it white/ reddish colored and mottled with darker colors too?

sorry- no. I'm going out there tomorrow. If he's around I'll try for a more revealing shot

Krider's maybe? I've never seen one, but it looks a lot like the pictures in some of my guides.

Krider's show more white mottling in the upper side of the wings. My thought is this bird is most likely a migrant from the central plains, but I'd like to see the top of the tail to completely rule out an unlikely light morph Harlan's.

I took a drive into this guy's neighborhood today but didn't see this guy. I'll keep looking. Thanks for the input

I was thinking maybe a light Harlan's too-the two Krider's that I've seen were very different from this one. It's definitely interestingly colored, though. Pretty hawk!
