Hawk chasing dinner

I was out with my son taking pictures of sparrows for a bird book he is making when this hawk started diving after them. I believe it's a cooper's hawk, but not 100% sure. He didn't get his dinner this time but it was fun to watch.

'Tis a Cooper's, as indicated by the rounded tail, and a juvenile, as indicated by the vertical breast streaks.

Go birding in Florida AND keep the family happy
