The females are more difficult to tell apart, and this one looks like a female. It looks like a Cooper's because it appears larger than the Sharp-shinned. The wing and stomach patterns are also slightly different

Thank you venusflytrap2000! Could you please let me know how you make the difference with the Sharp-shinned Hawk?
