Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk

Lots of hawks around recently. At first I thought this was the same as the tentative Grey Hawk [update 12/3: probably a Northern Harrier] from a week ago, since he flew off to the same eucalyptus on the east side, and was about the same size. But the markings are quite different. Another view of him shows the V-pattern spots on his wings, so I would guess this is a red-tail.
