Help! Sharpie or Coop?

This guy showed up at my feeders yesterday, looking for breakfast.

Can you tell if it's a Sharp-shinned Hawk or a Cooper's?  (I know, I know. It's an age-old question.

My sense is that it was a Sharpie, but would like to be sure of the I.D. for an upcoming column.

BTW, the raptor below posed a similar I.D. question during the Christmas Bird Count. We all agreed it was a Coop. What do you think?
