Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) User: legopacific  (See all photos - 1)
United States (California) Could be a Cooper's Hawk? There's a pair of these that have been around for over a year. Regularly hunts near our backyard feeders. Coastal Southern California.

Incredible shot. Great to see you on here legopacific! Looks to me like a Cooper's Hawk, but the experts on here probably know better than I! Sharp-shinned are usually heavily streaked in the front.
Look forward to seeing more of your shots. All the best.

I agree with Chris about the streaks. From the angle of the shot can't tell if it has more of a buff color on the head. Excellent photo and good detail on the claw. Contrats.
