Agreed, an adult Cooper's Hawk.  The light nape (same shade as cheeks) creating a capped appearance is a good thing to look for to differentiate them from adult Sharp-shinneds.

As is the blocky-looking head, I believe.  Sharpies' heads are described as looking like a scoop of ice cream.

Also Cooper's prefer blue cars over white cars, or at least it looks that way.:classic_wink:

Funny you should say that. A couple of years ago, I pulled up at work in the morning in my blue Chevy Blazer. As I sat in the car for a few minutes, I suddenly heard a bunch of scratching and noise coming from above, A Cooper's Hawk and a Red-shouldered Hawk were fighting on the roof of my car.
