There is a bird called a "rugged hawk" i believe that resembles this bird in the photo a good bit, from what I can tell, but I'm pretty sure they don't get that far south. (from your avatar, it looks like you're in FL). I think the furthest south they go may be West Virginia, or Virginia. I could be wrong though. Also, they say that an Osprey's legs are almost scaled and not feathered, but I have seen photo's of Osprey's with what looked like feathered legs. My vote goes to Osprey. lol.
