Can you ID this raptor?

I'm really bad at this - especially raptors - they all look alike to me. This guy has black and white bands on the tail feathers. I would call it a red shouldered hawk, but I think he's too big. ????

Definitely red-shouldered hawk. They are about 3/4 the size of a red-tail, so not a small bird.

I would say red shouldered hawk, too, from the color and markings. I can’t judge his size.

Yep, Red shouldered hawks can get to be really big birds - have seen a few individual birds in our mountains that looked almost eagle-sized. What lens did you use to get that shot? It's great.
