Coopers or Sharp-Shinned Hawk? (1 Viewer)

Hello All,
I saw these hawks over the weekend. Need some help to confirm the hawk id's.

The first and second picture are of the same bird seen at Woodruff park in Dallas over this weekend. Looking at the head size and a little bit of shape on the tail I thought it was Cooper's hawk. Please correct me if I'm wrong.


The third picture I took this today at Breckinridge park. This is the only angle or the picture I could get. It hopped into the near by trees and could not be seen again. Wanted to see if it had a square tail but could not see the same. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Srinivas.

I go along with Cooper's Hawk as the legs look rather thick compared to a Sharpie ;)
