Perhaps juvenile red-tailed hawk Buteo jamaicensis ?
Appears to have a small mammal on post with him... perhaps why he did not fly away when I stopped at stop sign and paused to take photos through my dirty truck windshield.

The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range....
