I was at Reimers Ranch in Spicewood, Texas today and this bird flew over. It is not my best picture, but I am hoping someone can identify this bird.

I don't click on links, but the one pic that's showing is definitely a Red-tailed Hawk.

My vote is on red-tail. Any possibility this could be a Fuentes juvi? Sure is light.

24 to go

Most recent lifers: Red-eyed Vireo, Hooded Warbler, Gull-billed Tern, Palm Warbler, Lesser Nighthawk, Dusky-capped Flycatcher, Little Gull, Glaucous Gull, Thayer's Gull, Ancient Murrelet, Winter Wren 

 
This year's goal: Get life list to 375, see 315 different birds this year. 
 
Seen/heard: 289
To go: 26

Not a juvie, it has a red tail. This bird's color is well within the range I see daily.

Given the location, fuertes is the expected breeding subspecies, but I don't know how you'd rule out wintering borealis -- we get birds this light up here in Illinois every year.
