Hello, Laura

This is a male Northern Harrier, a.k.a. "Marsh Hawk".

The males are primarily greyish, while the females are mostly brownish.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Harriers do have a facial disk similar to owls which aids in locating their prey.

The Northern Harrier was one of my quests this past winter in southern Texas. And seeing a male was special as so few of them were around there for some reason. I have both sexes on my Flickr page (rkortemeier). The local birding lady called the male the Gray Ghost, but I have heard the term "owl-face", too.
