Looks like an immature Red-shouldered to me. The young ones back there are much drabber than our young Red-shouldereds out here.

Yes, Red-shoulder because of the squarish wing tips and streaky body, and the left wing shows a pale window (comma shaped), but the bird does have a very distinct eyeline....so be careful of that.

Saying that it is not a goshawk (the bird most people associate with an eyestripe) becuase it is heavily streaked with an eyeline.
