It would be great to learn of the specific field marks used to ID this
bird. Cooper's Hawks often make a kak kak kak call, therefore, this should
not be the only critical field mark in determining whether this is a
Goshawk or Coop. Using size as another field mark is also not reliable.
I'm not saying it is or it isn't a Goshawk, but it sure would be nice to
know what else was used to nail the ID as a Gos. A photo or recording would
be helpful, if those field marks are not outlined.
Carol, this bird was seen on private property.
