Subject: [CT Birds] Help with Cooper/sharpie

Hi all -
Have been having fun with the GBBC, avoiding tackling the taxes... this morning our resident "feeder hawk" cleared the feeders, and I was able to sneak over to the edge of the deck and lean down to get a couple of pix of him/her.  I still struggle with the Cooper's/sharp-shinned distinctions - if you feel like it, visit my flickr page and let me know which one you think it is, and why.
