Hawk ID***Updated with video***

Anyone know what type of hawk this is? It decided to visit my dental factory this afternoon. I know it's one of two types but hopefully someone knows for certain.

and here is some video I got as well. I reckon they don't call them a bird bath for nothing.

I have had patients tell me it was a coopers and some tell me its a sharp shinned. Even looking at pics online I can't really tell the difference and don't know. It sat in the bird bath 5 feet outside one of my windows for 15 minutes. It was very cool watching it take a bath.

Im no expert but a Coopers has a flatter head shape on top. Sharp shinned will have the more rounded head. It looks to be an adult bird and a pretty good size one at that (coopers are bigger). Finally, it looks like the tail feathers are more rounded instead of flat and square like on a sharp shinned. That's why I said Coopers.

Either way it is an awesome picture!

That is a QUAIL hawk.
Further down South, referred to simply as a BIRD hawk.
They eat lots of birds.

Coopers Hawk. I have them here at the house and they like to pick off tweetie birds at the bird feeder.

No matter where you go, there you are
