Hawk-like grey bird in Southern CA beach area?

by Tina
(Hermosa Beach, CA)

Today, a beautiful light grey hawk-like bird landed on my deck and then flew away. The bird had:

Small hooked beak
Predominantly light gray with no pattern
White underbelly or lighter grey
A light pink horizontal band across chest

The bird was about the size of a seagull.

Ideas?
