What Is This?

Have a few thoughts on what bird this is but wanted other thoughts? What is this bird? Seen on my yard fence in a suburban neighborhood, Bartlett, IL.

I’d say that was a sharp-shinned hawk. They are larger than a coopers hawk but look very similar. They mainly prey on other smaller birds.

I agree with Olivia. It looks like a Sharp-shinned Hawk to me.

Renee says:

Sharp shinned are smaller than Cooper’s hawk and this was a large hawk

Laura Dent says:

Sharpies are quite a bit smaller than Coopers………too bad you didn’t rotate the picture so we could see him right side up. Look at my photos submitted today for a close up of both.
