Can someone please help with ID? I thought a Northern Harrier or a juvenile sharp-shinned hawk?

Meant to say that this raptor was seen in Half Moon Bay, California.

Thanks much. Would have never guessed but now that you mention it, after doing a quick google search for images of juvenile Red-shouldered Hawks, I think you're absolutely right.

I just posted a pic that I think shows a juvenile and adult Red Shouldered Hawk together. Check the forum.
