I agree Swainson’s Hawk …. shape, ID marks under the chin and the tail all say Swainson's
I think that might be a Swainson's Hawk. Still an awesome shot and a beautiful raptor.

It's good luck to photograph a Golden Eagle in flight. I stopped en route home from Glenns Ferry, Elmore County, yesterday to look over the Snake River and watched this raptor soar past. No swallows yet under the Old Highway 30 bridge, but it won't be long, I'm sure.
