Hawk, red tailed? ID Please, Oklahoma, US

Here is one shot of the hawk on the top of a pole then flying off of the pole. I am assuming this is a red tailed hawk but need to know for sure and if juvenile or adult. Thanks. :)

Definitely an adult Red-tailed - juveniles have a brown tail with fine barring on it.
