I photographed this immature accipiter in my yard.

I did not hear it call and I am not good at estimating size, but I am 
guessing about the length of an American Crow, maybe a little less.

It flared its tail once and it appeared rounded. But the rest of the 
time it appeared as in this photo of the rear of the bird.
