Waiting For Mother

According to my copy of BIRDS of North America by Kenn Kaufman, this is a Cooper's Hawk and a juvenile. I suspected as much because I would not have seen it but for it's frantic alarm call. When I came back one hour later it was still near its nest and apparently waiting for its mother (or so I would like to think - this being Mother's Day).
