Monday Mystery: We Need Your Help!

John Pastore took this shot of two young buteos in his neighbor's yard (about a block from the Celery Farm) yesterday.

Are they Red-tailed Hawks or Red-shouldered Hawks?

If the latter, it would be great and exciting news since have been unable to find an Red-shoulder nest the past two springs after they had nested (sometimes successfully) near the Celery Farm since 2002. They are an endangered species in New Jersey when nesting.

What do you think, and why?  (Thanks, John!)
