i posted this one a bit late at night for me and didn't get to id it right away. this morning i'm coming to the conclusion that it's a white-tailed hawk.

I have indicated this to be a Short-tailed Hawk because many of the features in the photos match this species. However, this would be at the extreme northern reach of its range. You may want to talk with a local bird club about whether this is an accurate identification and whether there is precedent for this species in your area.
