Not sure we can do much with these photos. Any chance you can attach them as larger images or have other angles?

I'll go out on a limb and guess Rough-legged Hawk.

I think it's a Rough-legged Hawk. The back is pretty solidly dark, without the v shaped speckle pattern a Red-tail should show.

In my defense, spellcheck though that my typing was correct, and who am I to argue..

I'd go with RLHA based on the GISS, but far from sure on these shots.

Here is another photo which I believe is the same bird. I think the wrist patch will confirm what all of you have felt was an RLH
