Photo taken October 11 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Is this a Broadwinged Hawk?

Looking at the tail pattern and the barring on the wing coverts, I'd go with young Red-shouldered.

I tell you, hawks are hard to ID ... I've got a lot to learn but I'm enjoying the challenge. This would be my first Red-shouldered ... wish it would have stuck around longer. It had some pissed off crows that drove it away. Thanks
