Waiting, watching

I captured this shot of a hawk.  Unfortunately, I don’t know what species.  If I had to guess, I would say maybe a Red Tailed Hawk?  If any of you know, I would appreciate any suggestions.  I tried Google but am still not sure.  One thing I’m certain of: this bird of prey had beautiful plumage.

  1. It’s hard to tell from just the face, but it doesn’t look like a red-tailed hawk to me. It looks like a young northern harrier, often called a marsh hawk. It isn’t a sharp shinned or coopers hawk either.

What do you think?
