CLOSED: What kind of hawk?

Brainerd, MN

Don't know if you can tell from this photo or not - scared it up when I pulled into the driveway. Very distinct brown and white striping on tail feathers...Not terribly large bird.

Just saw a pair flying high heading toward the river. Hear them calling - wondering if this might be a young one... Osprey?

Don't see a place to add the photo...

Can't tell whether this is a Buteo or an Accipiter, but definitely not an Osprey!

Wild guessing gets a pass, eh?
