This shot was taken on Grand Manan Island at the Anchorage Provincial Park Labor Day weekend.
With some help, I now believe this to be a Northern Harrier.

This is the same bird as the one perched in the first photo. I watched it fly (got this picture) and then got another one when it stopped on that tree. You can see the white rump so I believe it is a juvenile Northern Harrier. 

In October a few years ago, I was in my backyard early in the morning and this Cooper's Hawk surprised me.

And this one I took this past summer walking along the Clyde River road (PEI). Also with some help, I now believe this to be an immature Merlin.

Thanks members of for the help!
