What's he?

So is this one a Cooper's Hawk? It would seem he fits the bill more so than the last one I posted. He is about 1/3 the size of the other fella'. This one is the size of a crow. He was sitting on a post across the driveway from me this morning. I managed to come back into the house and get the camera and then snap some pics from about 10 feet away before he got irritated and flew away.

Wow great shots 14+...Still hard to tell. If I was guessing I wouold say this one is a sharp shinned. I will post a couple of pics from a raptor identification site and as you will see they have striking similarities but different??

First the Coopers hawk and then the Sharp Shinned

Mmmm, ok. So a Sharp Shinned. Thanks Winston. He's pretty tiny. I'm hoping he's sticking around to help clean up the plethora of meeces I have hiding in my flower beds. Hopefully there is enough of them he will leave the birds alone.

Nooooooo!!!! I want the meeces gone. I'd rather them than the birds. Birds don't come in the house and poop all over everything. Not to mention the sicknesses. Meeces may by cute but !!
