Great capture!! I'd love you to add this spotting to the mission Raptors of North America: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8627...

Accipiters (Coop/Sharpie/Gos) have longer tails. Dana is correct, this is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk. Only adults have the red tails.

It sure looks like a immature Cooper's Hawk.

Accipiter cooperii
