First impression -  small hawk. First seen near Laupot Bridge, heading north. Finally found again near waterfall. Behavior very different from cooper's or redtail. Lots of moving around low down. Hopping around on branches while watching for potential lunch.  Ann helped with ID, juvenile sharp-shinned hawk.  Lots of branches in way. Hard to get clear shot. Difficult lighting.  Didn't want to spook hawk since it was so low.  Eventually it flew towards the Oven. Never saw it catch lunch.
Pretty little hawk.
