What is this?

Saw this on my deck in North Liberty today and I'm curious. I initially thought that it was a hawk. But it doesn't seem to match up with the pic of a hawk in my Iowa Birds book. Thanks!

Hi, our wildlife specialist sent this link https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Coopers_Hawk/id and said that it is relatively common. Enjoy
