While  always nice to see a good discussion on young accipiters. I am agreeing with Greg on this one that the hawk is most likely a Coop. Goshawks have a heavy and more 'substantial' look. I know this not  an "objective"  comment on accipiters.but I am putting in my 'two cents" on this one that the hawk is a large young female Cooper's.
