    I was going down the highway, traffic was a bit bad and saw this bird, I'm guessing it's a hawk, but I'm really not 100%, anyone know exactly what it is? [​IMG]

    Looks like a red tailed hawk to me, but I certainly am no authority.

    It does look extremely close to one, I know not all will look a like, so I'm going to agree with you.

    It is a red shouldered hawk. We have a pair that spend winter in our yard.
