I have found this bird in my house, I live in Haedo, Buenos Aires, Argentina. I tried to take a closer photo but it escaped flying. I am not sure how to describe it, but it's very big compared to normal birds.

This are the photos: enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

That specimen in your photo seems to be the Southern Crested Caracara, Caracara plancus:

Also your location matches the range of C. plancus, which is from northern Brazil to Tierra del Fuego:

In the US , I would say it could be an osprey , especially if there is a body of water nearby. Or Caracas if in dry grasslands.
