As no one has ventured an id yet - I'm leaning toward red-shouldered hawk;  fairly common in that area and the 'transparent' - (lighter) patch toward the tip of the wing is pretty characteristic of this species.  I see why you'd lean toward accipiter - with the pointier wings but a hawk taking off or trying to gain altitude will be pumping the wings hard and are not always 'flared' as they are when soaring;  giving the impression more accipiter-like.  Just my 2 cents . . .
