Are Red Tailed and Red Shouldered Hawks protected species in the U.S.?

It's probably a coincidence, but I just saw an animal control officer drive by a few minutes after I spotted what I think was a Red Shouldered Hawk on my property. I was just wondering if I can tell him to go whistle next time, or if he has the right to remove the poor creature.

Answer:
Well, the officer probably wasn't going to take the hawk.

But just so you know, neither the Red Tailed or Red Shouldered Hawks are protected species. Red Tailed Hawks acctually have a large range and are doing well right now. Red Shouldered have a small range but are relatively stable.
no
