Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned

Recommended Posts

The question as old as time..

Not to shape anyone's opinion, but I am more inclined to call it Cooper's because it appeared A. large, certainly larger than a crow, it stood out from a half mile away and B. the head appears to be "blockish" in the back rather than rounded. This tail angle seems inconclusive to me, but I'm interested in your opinions! Thanks for any help!
