Observation details

At about 12:20pm while on the northwest side of the Prado Street bridge (32.7316626, -117.1557704) I noticed a hawk soaring in circles above the archery range on the northeast side of the bridge (32.7319396, -117.1536635) It’s flight seemed like a RTHA, but markings looked closer to RSHA, but not quite right as it had a wide tail band and very dark border around otherwise pale wings. It eventually stooped in my direction heading west when I lost it because of tree canopy above me.
