Thank you everyone for the kind comments. Beekeeper I appreciate the detailed info. I will see if there are better photos of the tail. :-)

Excellent work! I'll agree with Cooper's as the ID, but I'm no expert.
Where's your copyright info on your images.

Never bothered to do it, but I suppose that's a good idea from now on. Thanks for suggesting and the nice comment!

Juvenile goshawks usually show a narrow light bar between the dark bands, and light bands. Accipiters can be confusing, and it's best to use several traits to pin down an ID. Size, and overall appearance can help, just don't rely on one field mark to make a decision. Things like molt, age, feather wear, and how the bird is lit can be deceiving. Some birds just don't fit the norm, and can have feather patterns resembling other species. I've seen more than a few Sharpies, and Cooper's with white 'eyebrows' which is usually associated with goshawks.

Here's a link to a picture on Flickr showing a typical juvenile goshawk. The pic is not mine.

Coopers Hawks eat birds and on occasion, small mammals. I don't think this is a Coopers. These are great shots though.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
