What do you see that let's you make the call?  Thanks.

I get Coopers fairly regularly in my backyard, so I can usually tell by body shape. This bird looks more compacted and round, with a round head. Also, the tail doesn’t seem long enough, and it lacks the white band at the tip, which I think we would be able to see if it was a Coopers.

Thanks.  I only see a few Cooper's a year, never in my yard or where I can easily study it.  I've only seen one bird I could comfortably call a Sharpie, but that little sucker hung out around the feeders for almost 20 minutes.  🙂
