This hawk was photographed by my mother earlier today before I arrived at her house for Thanksgiving. We're located in central Indiana. The bird appears to be a juvenile. I was between a Red-Tailed Hawk or Red-Shouldered Hawk.

Thanks for the help,

Jordan

Agree with juvie Cooper's. A red-tailed would be much heftier, and would have a much shorter tail, as would a red-shouldered.
