Cooper’s or Sharp-shinned?

Recommended Posts

Photographed this hawk in woods in San Diego, CA area. Not sure whether it is a Cooper’s or sharp-shinned Hawk. B9738BD1-72AD-45F6-BF28-BD7AE6CCA486.thumb.jpeg.a51e147f443b8a92cf6aa0b0d62d7518.jpeg

The dark cap with the light nape (back of the neck) makes this a Cooper's Hawk.  An adult Sharpie's nape would be the same dark gray as its cap.
