It's not easy. Here's a good site with comparison data: http://www.allaboutb...Coopers_Hawk/id. They are not, of course, identical; but sometimes it seems that way. You can also do what I did: look at every single thread on WhatBird that asks the question, look at the photo and study it, and then read the answers. After you do that, then when another thread pops up, look at the photo & try to make the ID yourself before reading the answers.
OK so I have to ask: how could you tell Sharp Shinned and not Coopers??? Aren't they nearly identical? The only way I can ever tell them apart is the call.
