    I think it may be an immature Sharp-shinned hawk……rather than a Cooper’s.

      I’m the photographer. I did some digging, and I think you might be right. The calls of these birds match those of the sharp-shinned. This is one of a group of four that have been in and around my home for the last month to month and a half. I have a pic of three of them, but I can’t seem to post it for some reason.

Sorry, comment time is over.
