I was birding the lagoon between the RR tracks and Rios when I saw a group of crows chasing an accipiter around a large pine tree and into the neighborhood on the bluff.  It was either a Cooper’s or Sharp due to coloring/pattern but the size of it was significantly smaller than the crows.  The tail appeared blunt in flight but that can be deceiving.  It’s the tiny size compared to the crows that makes me question it being a Cooper’s, but from all accounts I can find in the Bird Atlas a Sharp would be very rare.  I am listing it as Sharp/Coop but if anyone else is out that way maybe you can watch for it.Alison HiersCarlsbad, CA
