Looking for Breakfast

On a recent summer morning, a Cooper's Hawk, I believe, landed on the fence, 
searching intently for prey. 

A small bird was moving below and caught his eye - his very intense red eye!

He moves in for a closer look.

He has narrowed his search.

Or, perhaps not, as he takes one look back.

and heads out with no success.

This hawk appears to me to be a Cooper's Hawk, but after reading through the Cornell Identification notes (, comparing a Cooper's and a Sharp-shinned, I'm not as a certain. Please feel free to weigh in!
