Okay, Sage I too considered a sharp-shinned but this guy is bigger than that and we do have sharp-shinneds here fairly often as well so this would have been a really big sharp-shinned. My best guess was that it was an immature coopers, but I just wasn't positive so I wanted to see what others here might think it might be. Of particular notice to me was the darker banding on the underside of the wings which pretty much rules out the red-shouldered or red-tailed. Another is the light color of the eyes. Size of the bird I would say was a good foot and a half. The branches he/she sits on were a good 8" in diameter or more.
