Unnamed spotting

Description:

Cooper's Hawk, Sharp-shinned hawk, Merlin?

Notes:

Apparently it's hanging around, saw it again today around the side of the house near my bird feeder! I spooked it before I could get a better picture.

I cannot tell between the Cooper's Hawk or the Sharp-shinned hawk. I also saw Merlin's look the same and I'm in the migration zone. Hmm...

This is ether a Cooper's Hawk or a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Nice find!
