|Beautiful bird . I second a juvenile Red Tail.. The only one that kinda looks like it is a Coopers Hawk |

|Good day @threegardeners|
It surely is a Red-Tailed Hawk species but it is most likely a juvenile Kriderii (also spelled Krider's) which can be mistaken as a Harlan's Hawk.
If you ever get a photo of the tail and wing tips would be a big help.
Beautiful bird and great photo.
Hope this helps a bit.
