This has been discussed by a few people already, but I thought I would throw it 
out to the larger group.

Thursday morning I had an adult accipiter feeder bomb a group of birds at Davis 
Mountains SP. I initially thought Cooper's. It seemed large, stockier and The 
front edge of the wing looked straight. However, I only saw it briefly. As it 
was flying away it made the peep sound that I have only ever associated with 
adult Sharp-shinned. Sharp-shinned are known to breed in the Davis mountains as 
well as Cooper's.

So the question is this: do adult Cooper's Hawks ever make the peep sound?

I'm really not so worried about the ID, but more interested in the feedback on 
Accipiter vocalizations.
