Here he is - he is a year-round resident of my parent's back yard and feasts on their well-stocked bird feeders.

Any shot of the tail?
If s/he's a year-round resident, I'd put my money on Red-tailed. Broad-winged are migratory.

I would expect a Red-tailed to be going after rodents and not birds so much. Am I wrong in this assumption?

In general, Buteos do feed more on rodents than birds. Any raptor will probably take an easy meal though :)

The urban Red-taileds down here have adapted well to eating Rock Pigeons.

I won't attempt a guess as to which hawk it is, but that picture is beautiful!

I'd rather be birding.
