Nice shots! Also, those are actually Red-shouldered Hawks. You can tell because of the patterning on their wings and upper body. A Cooper’s or Sharp-shinned Hawk has a pretty much plain gray/brown back with maybe a few white spots, while a Red-shouldered Hawk has a black back with checkered white. Hope this helped!

Thanks you so much for the input.

I agree. Red-shouldered Hawks.
