    lol! It sure is...but which one is the million dollar question. The more I try to figure it out the more confused I become...sooo maybe someone will be able to save my sanity or what's left of it! ?

    Oh, sorry about that, I thought you needed help narrowing it down since you didn't say what you thought it was in the post. ?

    no stripes on the head and generally less prominent facial features..

    Yes, no stripes as in malar stripes and they also lack the streaking on the breast and flanks.  Savannahs are not as boldly patterned above - they are a more uniform brown color on the face and wings.

    So let's see if I have a reliable mnemonic for these two.

    Cooper's has a darker CAP

    Sharp-Shinned has the SAME  color head and nape

    Do I have that right?

    Yeah, that's good.  Although Sharpies have the same color cap and nape, but I get why you wrote head instead.

    Here's a question I've been wanting to ask since I signed on.  When I open a discussion, is there an easy way to go directly to the first comment I haven't already read?

    Thanks for any insight.

    There is a dot (or star if you've posted in that thread) at the left of the topic title that brings you to the first unread post in that thread.
