Default At the feeder

Caught this hawk sitting on the crossbars of my bird feeder pole yesterday. Saw him when I walked into my kitchen, stealthily, in very slow motion, reached for my camera which luckily was on the table, and took the shots from the center of the kitchen through a double paned glass door. Got off about seven before Otis, my dog, got tired of me whispering at him to stay in the other room, ran to the door, and scared it away. It was still hanging around nearby today, though. I saw him swoop off when I drove up the driveway. Probably hoping to catch a fat dove or perhaps one of the furry critters that glean the seeds dropped from the feeders. Anyone know what kind it is?

Nice shots considering through double glazing. Not from that side of the pond but would guess at a juvenile red-shouldered hawk
