Help with Hawk ID

Recommended Posts

The long tail with wide gray and black bands and the wings that barely reach the base of the tail make it an accipiter, and the pale eye and white markings on the back make it immature.  I'm going for Cooper's because of the good-sized and blocky head, big bill whose upper edge smoothly follows the curve of the forehead, and especially long tail.  (But you haven't heard from an expert yet.)

Rock Wren for me, but I suppose Canyon Wren is an option
