      Cooper’s Hawk, immature.

       

      Points to note:  long tail, with a shorter outer rectrix evident (gives the COHA tail rounding), whitish superciliary, relatively fine dark streaks on whitish breast, relatively bigger head (comparisons to Sharp-shinned Hawk).  Similar species to compare and eliminate are Sharp-shinned Hawk and Red-shouldered Hawk immatures.

      In the photo section, under albums, by ginetmat, unknown birds is a pic
      of a hawk I cannot identify. Anyone know. This hawk was hunting
      sparrows.
      Thanks
