I observed this hawk Sept. 2, 2019 soaring in circles above the forest near Rangeley, Maine.  My best guess is a dark morph of a Broad-winged Hawk, but I am very uncertain.

This is actually a light morph Broad-winged.  On my monitor I can see the rufous barring on the breast and the orange-tinted underwing coverts.
