Steve relates: After getting back from taking our ballots to the drop box, we had a visitor in our yard. He stayed for about 20 minutes.

Update: apparently this is a Cooper's Hawk - not a sharp-shinned hawk. They are said to be very similar in appearance.

How could you tell it wasn't a Cooper's Hawk? Size, head shape, markings?

DSR - apparently it IS a Cooper's Hawk. Steve used a bird book but they are very similar in appearance.
