There's nothing about that bird that suggests Harrier- the structure is bulky and compact, unlike the slim and elongated look of Northern Harrier. The tail is short, wings are broad.

The tail is too broad and too short; the wings are too wide; the only Northern Harriers that have distinctly black wing tips are adult males and the black is more extensive and contrasts more cleanly, sharply with the white under wing and they don’t have tails banded with black and white.
