I've had this sitting in my folder just waiting to be ID'ed. It was taken in August from my yard. It has given me trouble because of the lack of "belly band" we use to identify Red-tailed Hawks. It's the only picture I've got of this one.
Thank you for your help.

It is a Red-tailed, either just a very pale 'normal' bird, or one of the 'Krider's' subspecies.
