Sue asked me where to post sightings about other raptors here in Winnipeg and I think this might be a good place  ;)

Thanks TPC. Just wanted to let anyone interested know that we've had three eagles (an adult and two juveniles) hanging around the Assiniboine River between the perimeter and the Moray Bridge the last two days. Lots of interaction in the air between the juvies. Got a few photos and a short video but not great.

Thanks Sue... Will look to the skies, next time I'm crossing the Moray Bridge. :)

Hi Doreen,

I just saw your post and noticed that your question had not yet been answered.

I think you are absolutely right, that this is an immature Cooper's Hawk. I am no expert on hawks, but here is a photo of an immature Cooper's Hawk:
