Pictures of two different accipiters, without comment as to possible identification.  One was found perched and digiscoped in Kissena Park this past Monday, the other flew directly overhead and was photographed with my 100mm macro lens in the Rockaways on Sunday.  Sharpies or Coops?  That is, Sharp-shinned Hawks or Cooper’s Hawks?  Or one of each?
