saw today here in NY from a blind, flew close, seemed larger than a red tail and I didnt see a belly band.. but by the time I got the camera out the side windown this was the only shot I got before it went behind some brush on the side of the blind.. the white stripe on the wings, I dont remember seeing and the tail doesnt seem red, and I am alomst positive it wasnt a red shouldered

Agree with Red-shouldered. Note the translucent "window" on the primaries.

Weighing in late here, haven't been on in a few days... but this looks like a juv. Red-tailed to me. The translucent area looks to be rectangular and inlcudes the primary covert feathers. On a Red-shouldered, it should be crescent-shaped in part due to being restricted to the primaries.

My thoughts as well. Red-tailed for me.
