Juvenile hawk, Central Texas

Outskirts of College Station, south Central Texas.

Is this a juvenile/immature Red-shouldered Hawk? Had wondered about a Cooper's Hawk, but don't think the tail is long enough.

Thanks in advance,

HelenB

Red-shouldered. Note the checkered secondaries and the dark(ish) eye.

Yup, Red-shouldered. Got plenty of them around the last couple of weeks.
