A hawk is about to fly off with a 3 or 4 day old Eurasian Collared Dove chick

This nesting attempt is about to end badly.
Can someone identify this bird of prey.
Wow, what a perilous moment to capture on camera! This image shows how hard it is for birds to successfully raise young, but on the other hand, the hawk is probably feeding young of its own. This looks like a Cooper’s Hawk to me.
maybe sharp-shinned hawk?
I think you are right. The Eurasian Collared doves have another set of two doing well, I expect them to fly in another 4 or 5 days. I actually have a video of the Hawk grabbing the chick and flying away. It can be shared as a text message if anyone is interested.
I second Coopers Hawk
I think Peregrine Falcon
It’s not a Peregrine Falcon.
