Is this a Red Tailed Hawk? He came to my bird feeder yesterday and was terrorizing the smaller birds.

And, very hungry....I've seen them swoop down and grab a dove from the platform feeder in the winter. This time of year is rare (at least in our area) to seen them at a yard feeder.

Don't see any red on it's tail. I think it is more apt to be a Broad-winged Hawk or Cooper's Hawk.
