Thanks! I didn't look to closely at the far-away shots since I saw them together. I just assumed they were the same.

The hawk in the last two images is a different species. It appears to be a Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-...

You should move those two images into a separate spotting since it is of a different species. :-)
