 Looks more like an immature Red-shouldered Hawk to me. The tail bands are not wide enough for a Coop. and the terminal dark band on the tail is not consistent with Broad-wingeds. If I use my imagination I can see a hint of rufous "red" in the shoulders. Just my thoughts.

I thought the same.? It has a great Coopers 
profile, long and lean, except that the wings are too long and the tail isn't 
long enough.

Not sure on the size but it looks like an hatch year Cooper's to me.. The 
  yellow eye puts it as a hatch year bird, the head is looking more Coop's to

Yes, me and my bird ignorance are back. I saw 
    a hawk at Carlos Avery that I (very tentatively) IDed as an immature 
    broadwing. I would appreciate it if someone might look at this 
    pic and critique my efforts.

Thanks in advance for any help.
