Hawk, more snow pictures and a sunset

I spotted this hawk behind my house this morning. Does anyone know if this is a Cooper's Hawk?

Yes Lisa, it appears to be a Coopers Hawk. I saw a hawk here today, but too far away to photograph, and wondered what it was. With your photo, I googled images of Coopers Hawks, and that what I saw too!

Cooper's Hawks and Sharpshined Hawks can be quite difficult to tell apart unless you see them at certain angles/views/flying. I'm a birder and I can't tell which of the two it is from the photo. HOWEVER, no reason we can't just assume it's one or the other (heaven knows I do!). There are no Hawk Police to poke us with a stick if we get it wrong. : D
