Juvenile Coopers Hawk

We found this hawk in the wooded area on the end of the Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division. We think it is a juvenile Coopers Hawk. It was sitting on a branch right over the road and did not seem to be bothered by cars or people. It was in the shade of all the taller trees above it. Not great shots because of the darkness under the trees. I had to shoot with a +1.3 exposure compensation and opened up the shadows in Camera Raw. I was fun to see even if they are not great shots.
