Dazed Hawk

This bird crashed into our large window yesterday morning. It sounded like a small sonic boom. I went out and started photographing the bird from as close as 140 cm. It took the bird about 10 minutes to recover, fly off and sit in a nearby tree. I’m not sure the species of this hawk but it maybe a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. If you think otherwise, please let me know by commenting.
