Wondering about Sibley's saying coarse, brown streaks for Sharpie, and thin, dark streaks for Cooper's.

Those streaks are darker and less rufous than is typical for Sharpie.  And "thin" probably isn't the right word.  The people at the Raptor ID group on Facebook say "teardrop-shaped" for Cooper's, meaning exactly what your bird has--feathers with a dark spot and a dark shaft.
