Cooper's or Sharp-shinned

Recommended Posts

Seen today, Feb 26; Norwalk, CT; around 3pm, in tree on roadside in fairly busy zone (auto repair shops, etc.)

Photos all of same individual. (Light was tough.) 

I tried to look at size, feet, chest markings, eyes, tail length, and head shape to make an ID. But not at all certain. I thought general size and eyes might support Cooper's ID. But head shape (in profile), and maybe the thick streaks on chest made me think Sharp-shinned. 

I'm not very experienced with hawks, so trying to learn as I go. Any help appreciated!
