Curious what this Bird of Prey is

by Jeremy
(Alliston, Ontario, Canada )

I saw this bird early afternoon in early April.

It let me get quite close and take quite a few pictures before it flew off.

I'm not sure what bird it is.

I appreciate any feedback.

Thanks.

Most definitely a Cooper's Hawk

This is most definitely not an Osprey or a falcon. Just Google Juvenile Cooper's Hawk and you can confirm my ID. The yellow eye confirms the Juvenile, along with many other indicators.

I believe that is a juvenile Cooper's Hawk. Beautiful pictures. You were lucky to be so close to it.
