how many repetitions in the call? if 3 or more I would say red-shouldered hawk but hard to tell from the pic for me


Bird species decently photographed in the U.S. - 167 and counting.....

I heard its voice, when it flew to my backyard.  Definitely didn't have a fan tail, it looked long and narrow, but couldn't tell if it looked rounded on the end or not. I have other pictures but nothing any better than this pic. I have a close up of its face.

This looks like a Coop. The tail's too long for a Red-shouldered, and the bars are too broad. The outer tail feathers are clearly shorter, and the streaking disappears before the legs. Incidentally, all of the Accips give long series of calls, so that would only be useful in ruling out Broad-winged or Red-tailed.

Agree, Cooper's Hawk.
