    1. Reviewed by Allen Fish    May 18, 2007

    Action: changed name from "Accipiter striatus" to "Accipiter cooperii "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Two features slide this from Sharpshin to Cooper's: (1) is the squared-off back of the head, some Coopers show it, no Sharpshin does; and (2) the short length on the outer tail feather -- just too long for a Sharpshin. Some books designate the white brow as a signature Sharpshin mark. Sadly it is not."
