unknown bird of prey ny ulster county

hello, the other day I was fishing in the Rondout River which leads into the Hudson. I Looked up to notice a large white bird about the size of a hawk. I know what red-tailed hawks look like as there's a lot by my house. The bird I saw was mostly white except it had black around the tips of its wings and it was very sleek, like its wings were pretty thin. I've never seen anything like it around here. I only saw the bird from the underside as it flew past downstream. Anyone have an idea what it may have been? Am in New Yrk, by the way.
