Hey Everyone, 

Another WA state ID, I'm really bad at hawk IDs, I don't see enough of them 🙂

Spotted in a group of 3, possibly juvenile, medium sized. Initially spotted near stream on logs on the ground.  

Plenty more photos if needed 🙂

That is a young Cooper's Hawk.  It can be differentiated from the very similar Sharp-shinned Hawk by the larger, blockier head, smaller eyes with a fierce expression that are placed closer to the bill, more robust legs, narrower streaking on the breast, and longer tail with feathers of different lengths.
