Peregrine Falcon

Falco peregrinus

Description:

Adults are blue-gray above with barred underparts and a dark head with thick sideburns. Juveniles are heavily marked, with vertical streaks instead of horizontal bars on the breast. Despite considerable age-related and geographic variation, an overall steely, barred look remains.

Habitat:

Small tropical cay off coast of Belize.

Tough call from these photos, but my impression was another Peregrine Falcon, Falco peregrinus. eBird has reports from your area.
