Looking at the dark areas on the fore wing, could it be a Rough Legged Hawk? I'm not in the US and not familiar with your species so probably miles out with my guess.:(

I’ll look up the rough legged hawk. It is so hard with juveniles sometimes different than adults.

Yeah, it was just the dark areas on the front of the wings that I thought similar but several species might have these type markings. Still a mystery then.
