Hawk

There were 16 hawks in the field the other day when we were cutting hay.  Two of them had a fight over a little jack rabbit.  The jack rabbit lost!  I think this is an intermediate juvenile (first year) Red-Tailed Hawk, but I’m not sure.  They don’t develop the red tail until they are adult.  If you can help identify it I would be most grateful.
