Definitely a red-tailed hawk, see https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-tailed_Hawk/id

Looking at the birds right wing, I would guess that it is molting. Notice how jagged the trailing edge is... missing feather. Thus, I might guess that the 'stalk' sticking out of it's right wing is a very worn feather.
