Sharp-Shinned Hawk?

Can I go with a Sharpie on this? Sitting out back watching the bird feeder. All of a sudden about 20 Mourning Doves launch - I thought "something spooked them." About 30 seconds later this guy flew in. Makes for an interesting afternoon. Same bird both pictures.


Appreciated -

Great shots!  It has the classic Cooper's head -- flat top that is even with the top of the bill, relatively small eyes toward the front of the head, large size compared to body.
