Hawk ID?

From central Florida.

My guess was an immature Red-shouldered, but I'm not really sure.

Here is a Belted Kingfisher shot from the same day.

There are tons of red-shouldered hawks around, and after taking the pic it flew off into the forest so I was kinda suspicious. Not too many kinds of forest hunting Buteo's around here.

Thanks for the verification.
