Cooper's Hawk or Sharp-shinned Hawk? (Nevada)

Recommended Posts

In the first photo there appears to be a color differentiation between the head "cap" and the nape. Nape appears lighter, grayer, which would normally point to Cooper's. Breast streaking with Cooper's can be more brownish than red as with Sharp-shinned. Always tough to tell with these so I would wait for other opinions before concluding one or the other.
