this was taken so far away but it looks like a long tail with stripes across it... had hoped to catch up with this hawk on the other side of the park but it had taken off before I got there

Description

My guess is Cooper's. Sitting in the middle of Mopac. I don't think I've noticed a Coopers/Sharp-shinned sitting on Mopac. Probably due to the loss of trees on Burnet due to development.

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.
