Glen, would you mind adding this cooper's hawk to my mission Hawks of British Columbia?

KarenSaxton, the last photo added is the last of them, not sure it helps.

I agree with Karen and think this spotting looks lke a juvenile Cooper's. Here is a good reference to compare:
Karen; here is one for you to practice those ID skills on
I assumed it was the same Cooper's I spotted earlier in the week, Jellis took a closer look and suggested Sharp-shinned. I just switched, but would like to know what you think. :)

Do you have a photo with the tip of the tail included? I"ve been working on my ID skills for this and the sharp shinned hawk. This looks like a juvenile coopers.
