[Tweeters] Mystery hawk

Sunday afternoon I was birding various back roads roughly east of La
Conner. I noted a perched hawk on a roadside pole and pulled over as close
as I dare to keep it from flying. I assumed it was just another Red-Tail
but was surprised by what I saw in my binoculars. The bird allowed me one
picture before leaving. The best I can figure is a light-morph juvenile
Swainson's. Can I get some ID help from the Tweeters community?
