Falcon or Hawk??

This little beauty took down a pigeon the other day and proceeded to eat it on top of my SUV. I have seen him around before but not this personal. I can walk up to about 2 feet from him before he moves but he won't fly away. When I first saw it I thought it was a hawk but now I think it may be a falcon. Didn't scratch the car but it took forever cleaning the blood and guts up. This thing can haul ass. I watched it take out a crow this summer and the damn thing can move out. Can someone help me decide what it is? The pictures are not the best, sorry.

Looks like a Cooper's Hawk to me. I've seen one in my neighborhood a few times.
