Hawk in British Columbia

Cranbrook, Canada

I'm unsure of what type of hawk this might be. It was filmed along the coast of British Columbia. I'm leaning towards thinking it is a young Cooper's Hawk. Any help is much appreciated!


Also, if anyone has insight into the call it is doing. It was being repeatedly harassed and chased by a Steller's Jay. Is this a call of distress?

Sharp-shinned Hawk. The Cooper's Hawk has a narrower, more pointed tail.

This is one of the Cooper's Hawks in my yard.

Thank you Cville! I had received the same answer from quite a few others - so I already updated the title and description of the video. I really appreciate the information. Have a great day!
