This Hawk was flying pretty high. I noticed the tips of the wings and tail were dark like I see in some Broad-winged sketches but I really don't know which hawk this is.Help would be much appreciated-thanks

The tranlucent (whitish) wing panels near the outer edge of the wing would indicate to me that this is an eastern Red-shouldered Hawk.

I agree, it is a Red-shouldered Hawk.
