Very Small Hawk

This is a small hawk that was at my bird feeder. I think it is a sharp skinned hawk but I am not sure. Any experts out there?

I have found some pictures in the Audubon Ap on my Kindle Fire and I a now convinced it is a sharp skinned hawk.

Great pic. I think if u look up North American Kestrel you will find this is what bird is. His markings are like those of the Sharp Shinned and Coopers but Kestrel is a very small hawk. BEAUTIFUL picture.

I find it hard to tell the difference between Sharpshined and Cooper hawks. Beautiful capture of a hawk for sure.

Great catch. I found a Sharp Shinned hawk that looks just like this one.
