Very cool bird. I believe it is a sparrow hawk. Although blurred, I like the shot of him taking off.

When you crop, you are magnifying the image, so the graininess also get magnified. That's why they look noisy.

I think it's a sharp shinned hawk.

Jim I noticed you are from India

So it may be a Shikra

I think it's an Eurasian Sparrow Hawk.

you might be right - it looks like from your link they are all related.

They are hard to tell apart sometimes by my old eyes. Their plumage can change quite a bit from juvenile to adult and from male and female.
