I did not get any pictures of the tail. My thinking is this is a male Coopers because of it's size compared to the Mockingbird it caught plus the shape of it's head (Sharpies look as if they don't have a neck).

Just showing the black cap it's wearing...

Full frame using a 50D and a 70-200mm f/4L at 126mm focal length....I was in the right place and right time and saw it from start to finish. I did leave it alone once it moved under a bush to eat it's meal.

It is an adult Sharpy. Nice shots of it too. they are perfect shots for a positive ID. Remember, a coops has a dark cap, while the sharpy has the dark running all the way down it neck and into it's back, as so clearly as shown in pic 3

And why I posted that one because I remember you saying that about the Sharpie....the head just threw me off on this one. Thanks again Tom....always learning something from you.

If we would just say it is a picture of a small Accipiter instead of a coops or sharpy, everyone would always be right, well, untill someone posts a picture of a Goshawk. : )

It is a Sharp-shinned Hawk, note the nape and head are the same color andthe tail lacks a prominent white tip
