This hawk was photographed by my trail camera last week in Willis, TX (about 50 miles north of Houston). Hopefully the photo is good enough for an ID? That's the only angle it caught. The post he is sitting on is about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter.
My guess is Red-shouldered Hawk...

Thanks much, Resin! Appreciate the ID confirmation and the edit looks a lot better.
