Hawk in California - ID Help Please
2 Attachment(s)
I was at a park in Hayward today and saw this hawk. I lightened up the photo in PS for more detail. A juvenile something....Cooper's? I am just not sure.

Any help is much appreciated. :D

That would be a Red-shouldered Hawk race elegans. As far as aging, I would say that this is a juvenile.

Thank you so much, Tayler. I appreciate the response. :D

I second Red-shouldered Hawk.

I agree with Red-shouldered Hawk.
