Apologies for lousy photo. I'm not sure if it's a Cooper's or Sharp-Shinned Hawk. If anyone can tell, what are characteristics? Expected range/time of year?

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.
