Default can someone ID this hawk?

I was in my backyard today when a Bald Eagle and whatever this hawk is came flying in. They were chasing eachother and making all kinds of noise. I took some video which is pretty shaky and doesnt show too much
YouTube - Bald Eagle being chased by another hawk


here is a screen shot of the hawk

anyone know what it is? I thought it was a short tailed hawk but i guess those are only found in florida and well im in Minnesota, so i can only think its some kind of Kite but even that seems out of place according to my bird guide

Peregrines, Red-tailed Hawks, Osprey, Burrowing Owls - my faves! Then anything else with eyes, feathers or fur!
