RAPTOR: ID help requested

IMG_1364
   We have been getting all sports of Kestrels, Redtails, Ospreys and Harriers along Disposal Road, but the guy in the photo above took us by surprise the other day.
   We were at the beginning of the Saw Mill Creek Trail when this guy flew past, within 20 feet of us.
   He flew down the trail and landed on a rock by the tidal impoundment on the right.
   He is an accipiter, we figure, but need help. He (she) was fairly large. Any suggestions?
