Or maybe falcon, I'm no bird expert but it was circling over homes west of Cornell Centre Blvd around Donald Sim. Near the park under construction, but a good half block into the area with homes.
 
Seemingly large enough (I'd say 2x or bit more the wingspan of a seagull) to be careful with our small cats or dogs.  
 
To be honest, I don't know what the prey weight of a bird like that would be, but I don't want to find out if my puffball dog qualifies... Grin

It was likely a Red-tailed Hawk.  You can see them perched along Reesor Rd.  They will not come into residential areas so no need to worry about pets.

Steve H, tell that to the morning dove that a Red Tailed Hawk caught in my back yard (townhouse in Cornell Village) and proceeded to pluck clean under my Pine tree.
It startled me when I came out of the garage.  Sitting under the tree about 10' away, grabbed the bleeding carcus and flew to the roof where it finished its lunch.
 
I don't think dogs are on the menu, there is probably easier prey out there.
