Jimmy, I'd love you to add this spotting (and your other raptors, including your beautiful vultures!) to the mission Raptors of North America:

I agree with Christy that it's a Sharp-shinned. Not only because of the very straight tail feathers, but the barring on the chest is more consistent with a Sharp-shinned, not a Cooper's.

Nice series! I'm leaning towards Sharp-Shinned Hawk with that tail. Was it dove sized or crow sized?? I have a hard time myself figuring these guys out! Here's a great link for comparison:
