Sure No One’s Tired of This—Immature Cooper’s or Sharpie?

Recommended Posts

Definitely young Cooper's. Note the thin streaking, tubular overall, relatively large, blocky head, small eyes close to the front of the head, and shorter outer-tail feathers.

"Squareness" and "roundness" of the tail are misleading; instead look at the relative length of the outer tail feathers. On Cooper's, they're noticeably smaller than the inner feathers, while on Sharp-shinned, all the feathers are about the same length.
