Please ID this bird who came out in the small snow "storm" we had yesterday in Douglasville, GA.  I have seen him/her many times in the past and believed it was a Cooper's Hawk.  I posted it on FB and a fellow poster believes it is a "Peregrine Falcon AKA Sparrow Hawk", which I did notice has different markings, such as gray bars rather than rust bars and the eyes look different in a couple of ways.  Since I possibly have already misidentified, please let me know ID and any identifying marks that would be different than the Peregrine Falcon.  Thank you - Bonnie Enriquez
