i don't often shoot birds so I don't know much about them, but what are the differences you see between bggraphy and the one i shot? they look so similar to me. colors and those tear-drop shaped spots on the breast. maybe their head shapes are a little different?

I arrived at Red-shouldered for one obvious reason, the length of the tail beyond the primary flight feathers. Much shorter than any juvi Cooper's I've seen.

Looks just like the one I was asking for an ID on that landed on my fence. The consensus was a juvi Coopers hawk

I would like to see the tail, but color and the brown eyes I would have to say a juvenile broad- winged hawk

I'd kinda go with juvenile Broad Winged Hawk because of the eye color. Juvie Coopers and juvie sharp shinned have yellow eyes. A juvie RSH has brown eyes, but this appears to have a shorter tail than a RSH, and it's got that little dark 'mustache' thing going on there on the side of his face that the BWH has.
