Oliver,This looks quite like a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk, a Buteo, not an Accipiter. The Accipiters (referred to as the true hawks) are representedby the Sharp-shinned Hawk, the Cooper's Hawk, and the largest of the three, the Northern Goshawk. The Red-shouldered Hawk, like its largercousins, is a Buteo.

The Spring is definitely in the air. A couple of days ago I saw a group of TREE SWALLOW near the Emily Renzel Pond; this morning I saw a Juvenile Hawk near the Boat Playground at Shoreline Lake; also both male and female WESTERN BLUEBIRD were active nearby.
I narrowed this accipiter down to a kind of juvenile, but couldn't be certain if it's a Juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk or Red-Tailed Hawk. Can anybody help out? Thanks.
