Fanned Feathers

I believe this is a Cooper's Hawk. If I am misidentifying this raptor, drop me a note. He was caught watching the activity in the yard and remained on the pine tree branch, no more than fifteen feet away, for over forty-five minutes.

As soon as the camera was retrieved to photograph him, he got ready fly. . . 

 . . . slowly spreading his tail with this wonderful display of fanned feathers.
