Hi Kimberly.

Looks like a Hairy to me! The bill is the right length relative to the
head. Juvenile HAWOs have a more extensive (sometimes even orangish) crown
than adults, so I suspect this individual is a Juvenile male whose red hair
hasn't receded yet, if you will (like mine has). Third picture down in
this webpage shows the more extensive red on a juvenile male...

Hope this helps (and is correct!)

Best,
Jonathan
