Beautiful bird . I second a juvenile Red Tail.. Hurray! 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.
