Northern Kentucky.. Do you know what type of hawk it is?
It's a red tailed hawk.
Young red tailed hawk
Photo is not very clear, but it looks like a Red Shouldered Hawk. Did it have a red-orange breast?
Haven’t been able to get a glimpse of the breast yet. It has a nest close by in a tall sycamore.
The head looks more like the head of a falcon....Look at the position of the eye relative to the beak.
I have a Red-shouldered hawk that has a nest near my home.
Pic ain't great but my $$ says red shouldered,..very common in these parts,....
I would agree, looks very similar. Haven’t been able to get a shot of the front but it looks just like your pictures.
Same family or genus as redtailed,...they are both broad winged hawks. Buteos
