Is that a type of hawk?  I am very new to learning about birds and am from Indiana and now vacationing in Florida.  I’ve never seen something like this bird in Indiana!!!

one other nice thing about the Cornell site are the maps they have

the first being the normal range map

but one that i use more is the sightings map - gives you a much better idea of if the bird had been in your area. 

 

and i too agree with osprey...have seen them ( individually an in pairs)  just about everywhere i have traveled...at least in the US.  They are somewhat distinctive once ID'd. The almost white head with brown eye line (paraphrased from Cornell) and the strong hooked beak.
