A large bird flew past my house and into a tall tree at the back of my neighbor's yard today in northeast FL. I took the camera outside and got some photos (not very good due to distance). I could tell it was a hawk and had caught a smaller bird. I think it's a Cooper's Hawk?

Yep,it's a Cooper's -- looks like an adult male based on the gray cheeks.
