Can someone please confirm this to be an adult Cooper's Hawk? Taken in Port Credit Ontario in March.
Thanks
Chris

Pale sides to hindneck + crown darker than mantle + big bill + shallow forehead = Cooper's hawk.
Chunky, not dinky.

I missed the wording on your post Bently - a juvenile/imm Cooper’s is streaked brown on the breast, and generally has yellow or pale orange irides and brown feathering on the back (often with white splotching) 🙂
