I'm thinking this is a Juvenile Sharp Shinned or a Cooper's Hawk? Am I close? Any help determining what this is would be great - THANKS!

Red-shouldered, immature.

Sharp-shinned and Cooper's both have longer tails.

Thanks Resin! Once I focused in on the tail more, it's clear that its a red shouldered.
