Red Tailed Hawk

Today while working, I saw this hawk land just outside the house on a tree in the yard.

 

I think it's a red tailed hawk, though the yellow on the beak has me a little confused. Is that marking the sign of age or sex? I'm not sure.

 

Anyway, the hawk only sat on the branch for a few minutes before flying off. I was able to snap a few photos of it, but as you can see it was obscured by many of the tree branches.
