Description

I think this is a Cooper's Hawk, but the pale eye is confusing me. Allaboutbirds.org says this hawk has a red eye...is that true even for young ones? Have I misidentified a Sharp-shinned Hawk?

Description from Wikipedia

Cooper's Hawk (Accipiter cooperii) is a medium-sized hawk native to the North American continent and found from Southern Canada to Northern Mexico. As in many birds of prey, the male is smaller than the female. The birds found east of the Mississippi River tend to be larger on average than the birds found to the west.
