This actually looks better for a Red-shouldered Hawk. Cooper's Hawks are accipters, so they have longer tails and a slimmer overall than Red-shouldered Hawks, which are buteos. Also, Cooper's Hawks would have a plain brown (not mottled) back, a bolder tail pattern, and crisper streaks on the underside.

I agree with akandula, this is a young Red-shouldered.

Sorry, about that. I should have looked at it better. :classic_blush:
