There are 7 of them on my block.
Seen all 7 sitting in the tree tops of a house across the street from me.

Definitely a hawk. Possibly a male Northern Harrier. confused2

I think the kite has a more polished clean feather look, we have the Kites around here and there feathers are very smooth rarely look out of place. My vote is for the Harrier

Juvy Mississippi Kite. Changing colors as it matures. Nice find.

The numbers you are seeing is another hint it's a kite. Kites will migrate in very large numbers, sometimes in groups of over 100.

Keep an eye out for a more mature bird mbavo. Adults will look silver/ slate blue.
