Raptor ID?

I watched this hawk working in our hayfield this afternoon for quite a while.  These pictures aren't great-I don't have the right lens for this type of photography but I'm hoping my aunt will identify it for me....or Robert-Northern Harrier.

    Male northern harrier - the white rummp, gray color, dark wing tips, and behavior of flying low over the grassland all say northern harrier. The white rump is the quick id Females and juvies are brown
