    Cindy...it is an immature Red-tailed Hk, the belly band gives it away, the immature bird does not have a red tail...hope that helps.
    Nice shot. Also look at the tail, not long enough for an accipiter.
    I dunno about belly bands or accipiters. I wonder if @BackdoorHippie might be able to offer some insight.

    In the meantime, I'll edit a lousy pic that shows the bird from the back. The image might yield additional info.

    EDIT: Below is a view of the back of this hawk.

    Thank you so much, Kevin. I really need to learn the subtle differences between hawks. This one reminds me of Chewbacca - and I recall photographing a similar one a year or two ago.

    Pretty sure this is the same immature Red-Tailed Hawk I photographed the other day. The chest markings are almost identical. Plus it was in the same area.

    I took my eyes off the hawk to watch the cars driving past (I was standing on the opposite side of the road). Within that time, it flew to my side of the road and landed maybe only 20 feet away. Since I didn't have any time to react, I took the shot below. It was overexposed a little, but since it was RAW, was easy to fix in Adobe Camera RAW. No crop to the image below. I simply couldn't fit it in my viewfinder and didn't have time to move backwards. Whatever it was going after managed to escape. There were a lot of leaves and debris on the ground so not surprised. It flew off quickly and went back to the wire so was fortunate to get this one photo.

    Wow, that's going back a LOT of years! I vaguely remember watching this commercial on TV. The only difference with me is I don't do stakeouts. If I don't see any wildlife in an area, I move somewhere else. Who knows how long it will be before one shows up. For those times, I switch to looking for landscape scenes.

    For some reason, I'm having a hankering for a KitKat bar....

    Here is another one of the Red-Tailed Hawk. The icicle formation that comes after the hawk reminds me of a wispy feather. The longest icicles were at least a foot long.
