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

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.

In my defense, spellcheck though that my typing was correct, and who am I to argue..

Life List (World): 1110 species
ABA area: 647
Latest ABA lifers: Ruddy Ground-Dove, Northwestern Crow, Spotted Dove, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Sprague's Pipit, Baird's Sparrow, Gray Partridge, Greater Prairie-Chicken, Yellow Rail)

California: 373

Riverside County, CA: 287
2016 ABA: 45

Yard: 90 (Latest: Red Crossbill)

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
