Another visit from this bird of prey

So everyday since the first time I ever got a visit from such a majestic and proud animal, it has been coming back daily.

Just watching over my yard. With or without people in the yard. It just sits and watches.

The first time I saw the bird I thought it was a Red Tailed Hawk, although now I'm unsure as it also looks like a young eagle.

Please let me know exactly what kind of bird this is as I'm sure there are plenty of experts out there, but unfortunately I am not one so I can't be sure. Thank you.

Wow! Thank you for submitting such great pictures!

I'm sure that one of our readers will be able to positively identify this hawk.

I would have to say it is Red-tailed hawk, by the tail banding as in a red-shouldered hawk, and no rufous colour in the shoulder area...I would though say it is about a 3 year just still juvenile status, and more specifically is the eastern subspecies (buteo borealis)

Definitely a red-tailed hawk and what a delightful, little fellow, indeed! Certainly a very curious bird and he's not a juvenile, so it's not like he's checking things out because everything is new to him. This could also be a female but I'm sure a true expert would be able to tell the difference and let us know. The male RTH is smaller than the female RTH, but when there's only a single bird, I can't tell the difference. :)
