Not sure we can do much with these photos. Any chance you can attach them as larger images or have other angles?

Life List: 700

Latest birds:  Rock Ptarmigan, Northern Hawk Owl, Vaux's Swift

I'll go out on a limb and guess Rough-legged Hawk.

I think it's a Rough-legged Hawk. The back is pretty solidly dark, without the v shaped speckle pattern a Red-tail should show.

There are 976 species on the ABA list. Looks like I've got a lot of birding to do....

Life List (World): 1094 species
ABA area: 634
Latest ABA lifers: Least Storm-Petrel, Ashy Storm-Petrel, Black Storm-Petrel, Craveri's Murrelet, White-eared Hummingbird, Ruff, Black-vented Shearwater, Rosy-faced Lovebird, Sinaloa Wren, Rufous-capped Warbler, Greater Sage-Grouse, Harris Sparrow, Tufted Duck, Red-throated Pipit, 
California: 348
Riverside County, CA: 256
2014 ABA: 409

2014 World: 669

I'd go with RLHA based on the GISS, but far from sure on these shots.

Here is another photo which I believe is the same bird. I think the wrist patch will confirm what all of you have felt was an RLH
