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.

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.
