To me it looks like a Cooper's Hawk with  that blocky head and red eyes. Nice photo

Thanks for the compliment on the photo.  Here is a better view of the profile.

Agree with Cooper's Hawk.  Looks like a female with those orange cheeks.

Is that a definitive field mark? I'm not doubting you, just curious.

Sibley says, "Adult male Cooper's has gray cheeks (orange on all others)", "others" being adult female Cooper's Hawks and all adult Sharpies.
