Beautiful shot---but that's actually a Red Tailed Hawk. I can see why you might think it's an Accipiter because the tail does look long for a Buteo, but that's a trick of the angle and the composition with the branch. Also, juvenile Buteos (and this is a young bird) have longer tail feathers than adults. You can tell it's an RT because the upper-breast is unmarked (the "belly-band" effect) and the banding on the tail is rather fine, as opposed to the heavy streaking of a Cooper's.

Bull Crap! Where you from? It is a Coopers! Do you want to see my RT photos? I am from Middle Tennessee, and we have Red Tails flying around like Crows.

Hey, you call it what you want----it's your photo. But I'm an expert on raptors (in Ohio, not that it matters), and it's a Red Tailed Hawk. Post it to whatbird.com if you want more confirmations. I wasn't trying to start a debate---just complimenting you on a nice pic.

I stand corrected. I have never seen a juvenile RTH before, and my 13 year old son pointed it out to me after you all did. My bad, apologies!
Thanks for the positive comments, and I should have been more open-minded.
