No Coopers Hawks currently listed for placement
The Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk native to the North American continent and found from Canada to Mexico. Like many birds of prey, the male is smaller than the female.
The average adult male, at 312 g (11 oz), 39 cm (15 in) long and a wingspan of 73 cm (29 in), is considerably smaller than the average female, at 500 g (1.1 lb), 45 cm (18 in) long and a wingspan of 83 cm (33 in). All have short broad wings and a long, round-ended tail with dark bands. Adults have a dark cap, blue-gray upperparts and white under parts with reddish bars. They have red eyes and yellow legs. Immatures have brown upperparts and pale under parts with thin streaks mostly ending at the belly. This bird is somewhat larger than a Sharp-shinned Hawk and smaller than a Northern Goshawk, though small males nearly overlap with big female Sharp-shins, and big female Cooper's Hawks nearly overlap with small male Goshawks. The Cooper's Hawk appears long-necked in flight and has been described by birdwatchers as looking like a "flying cross".

A Cooper's Hawk in my backyard enjoying a fresh kill of urban pigeon. I live in the middle of the city, Milwaukee.
After I took the picture, having been disturbed, this guy took the pigeon to the roof of the church next door where he finished his meal.
