I got a few replies on this hawk ID and confirmation from David Merker that it is a young Red-shouldered hawk and definitely not a Broad-winged hawk.
(One other person suggested juvenile Red-tailed hawk).
If anything changes I’ll let you know.

It was into the sun (unfortunately) but I am thinking juvenile red-shouldered hawk? Other choice is an early broad wing? Would appreciate opinions from you expert hawkers out there as I am definitely not one!
