Is this a fledgling hawk

Sorry these are the best shots I can get.
This bird was perched on the conduit for a floodlight under my awning. I cannot get a shot of his head. The two better shots are of its tail and back. The third and poorest quality shot is of its front/belly which appears tan with no spots/markings. These pictures were taken at night with floodlight on and no flash. When I turned the light out and used a flash the bird flew away. The base for the floodlight is 4 inches in diameter and the conduit is 1 inch in diameter.
We often see Red Tails and Red Shoulder Hawks and have Barred Owls and Eastern Screech Owls as well.
I am leaning toward a fledgling Red Tailed Hawk.
I appreciate any help in identifying it that you can provide.
