Help with ID of birds

Hap, and others....I have a new blogging visitor to my blog, his link is http://craigglenn.blogspot.com/ , he is just trying to get started in the birding world. He needs help with an id of a hawk. Since I probably am not right about my Broad Winged Hawk, I am not the one that can really help him. Thought some of you might be interested in a post of his this morning. He lives very close to the Lake Seminole Park that I keep posting photos from.
Hap, I am looking at the Red Shouldered Hawk now, they are so close. How do you tell the difference?
Oh, and have you noticed the right side bar lately? I have been adding butterflies, still don't have them all there. Work still in progress.

You are just one of the best blogging buddies! Yes, I have noticed your butterflies and need to take the time and do a comparison to my butterflies. Because you are the main reason for my obbession with making a butterfly garden, host plants and adult nectar!! (and a puddling area)

Hi Leedra,
Great deer photos in your last blog. I stopped by Craig's blog
and commented to him my thoughts
on the hawk. Like yours, I think
it is an imm. Red-shouldered,
based on the barring that is on
the wing secondaries that is well
shown in Sibley's guide. When I
get some time I will look at your
butterflies on the sidebar.
Hap in New Hope
