Southern Ontario today.

These may or may not be the same bird, same general area but different lighting conditions.

Sharp-shinned perhaps?

Thanks.

I’m not sure if I personally can eliminate some of the accipiters from this. I’m no expert, though. Wait for more replies.

The think the first looks like an immature Cooper's Hawk... angle making it a little tough. The second is a Sharpie.

Thanks everyone. They both disappeared very quickly. The first one was flying directly away from me so all the photos are at a similar angle.

This is the only other one of the first bird that may be helpful, but probably not.

Upon looking on my computer tonight... I now see all birds being Sharpies. 

Nothing like a big ol' honkin' monitor.

Final addition. I noticed the white balance was way off for this image. Not sure if it helps to confirm or just muddies the water.

If no responses I will take it as confirmation of both being Sharpies.

Thanks.

I really try to not go on ID sites from my phone... for just this reason. Sometimes I need to see the big picture!

Thanks again bb22. Always value your input but even after a while still find your logo/icon mildly disturbing!!

PS. It was the first sighting of a Sharpie at this location so yesterday was a good day (also first for a Northern Shoveler and a Meadowlark). This used to be a casual pastime for me but becoming mildly obsessive, should I be worried?
