I'm not getting any sort of a Red-tailed Hawk feel from this bird.

Surely it's not Red-shouldered, leaving Broad-winged as the only other option.

Hopefully others will comment as well.

I assume this is in or near Boston, MA, but it's always best to put a date and location in the thread title.

I had my lifer Broad-tailed Hummingbird from a restaurant in the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. I didn't have binoculars on hand, but the wing trill erased any ID doubts!

Looks more like a female Mandarin Duck to me. I think they have feral populations in Britain, but not sure where.
