Description

It was scavenging a dead opossum, along with two Turkey Vultures. As it was rooting around in the carcass it spread its tail -- a display to ward off the vultures?

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.
