We saw that bird, on the highway 8 near miramichi.  We though of a sharp-shinned hawk but it might be a cooper's hawk ... what do you think?

Hi Manon, actually I believe that you have a Broad-winged hawk.  Heavy dark barring on the chest along with a short tail and a broad band points to this buteo imho.  Hope this helps

I looked at this earlier, Andrew but was interrupted before I could respond. I totally agree with you.

Thank you for your help!

You're welcome

FYI - There will be rapor identification workshop at the Ganong Nature Park in Charlotte County on August 20 from 7-9PM.
