I think.

I watched this hawk work the shallow part of the marsh for nearly an hour. It would make a loop around the area and return to the same tree.

Description from Wikipedia

The Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) is a medium-sized hawk. Its breeding range spans eastern North America and along the coast of California and northern to northeastern-central Mexico. Red-shouldered Hawks are permanent residents throughout most of their range, though northern birds do migrate, mostly to central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation.
