could this be a sharpshinned hawk??? I can't see the body (chest) and head not to definitive for me.
Maybe a Cooper's hawk? Ask Bigfrank -) -) -)

A difficult one, I've sent the image to 3 skilled ornithologists, the first reply came back as probable Honey Buzzard. The barring on the tail is a diagnostic feature of this species, but the bill is a bit strong.

If you other pics of this bird please post them.

Until later
