Thanks to David (first response) Patrick, Bruce, James H., James D., Russ, John, Michael and Scott! You all came up with the same answer! Thanks for your quick response.
I'm thrilled that while I may have seen a Northern Harrier without knowing what it was, I've never photographed one to ID it before.

I spent the afternoon around Stearns Farm in Mansfield and came upon a hawk hovering about 4' above the ground in a field on Stearns Road. I took several shots of it and at first I ID'd it as a Coopers Hawk. But now that I'm looking at the photos, I think that maybe it's not a Coopers. Could someone please take a look and give me their expert opinion?
