The hawk is a Red Shouldered. I was advised: The black tail with the narrow white bands is a good character along with the rusty barring underneath, and the black and white marks on all the flight feathers.
Someone also told me you can clearly see some red on shoulder and nape - might be clear to them.

It is a Red-shouldered Hawk. Compare yours with mine.

Thanks WCKser for offering up the comparison - helpful.
And yes it is a "backward" hawk
Good Birding.
