Hawk ID needed

*UPDATE*

The verdict is in! The first three pictures are a juvenile Peregrine Falcon, and the final four are of an adult Broad-Winged Hawk. Many thanks go out to those who offered their input via email and in the comments section of this article. Thank you all!!

These two species of [tag]Hawk[/tag] have me baffled, although I have my ideas on what they are. I put it to our readers to suggest what they think they are. Simply click “Comments” at the end of this article and submit your guess.

The pictures were taken at Granite Point near Biddeford Pool, [tag]Maine[/tag]. The area is a marsh/coastal habitat. The first 3 pictures of the Hawk in flight are one species and the final 4 of the perched Hawk is the second species.

Thank you for your help!
