Due to a battle between my iPad and Yahoo I lost the majoity of e-mails that I had been saving including one that in detail described how to distinquish between a Cooper's Hawk and a Sharp-shinned Hawk.  The e-mail included photos.  I remember that the angle at which the upper part of the beak meets the face is the critical feature, but unfortunately do not remember which angle (smooth or steep) goes with which species.  I would greatly appreciate receiving this e-mail again or at least knowing which angle goes with which species.  Also, which is type of hawk is this...
