For me, it's not just that the tail is notched, but that it appears quite short and slight. Also, the crown stripe (the sliver visible) seems quite light, the bird has no reddish tones in the wings...

I agree with red-tailed hawk. Not sure about the sparrow, but the light background, hint of yellow in the eyebrow, and short tail have me leaning savannah.

This bird has a light nape and a fairly wide wide tip on the tail, so I agree with cooper's.

Sharp-tailed seems like a good bet with those white marks on the leading edge of the primaries. Definitely not a gray.

I believe the closer one is a first year male with a bright yellow eye and a dark bill. But I agree they are both hooded.

On this specimen you can also see relatively wide bands on the tail (more narrow on a young red-tailed), and the streaking is heaviest on the upper breast, which is usually lightly marked in...

In the group shot, the two on the ends are clearly lesser, but the middle one looks larger, bigger headed, bigger billed, and rounder headed.

I agree with a rather bright blue-headed vireo.

Not a raven with that tail. Could be a crow. I just realized it's in the same photo as the sharpie, so it's not as big as I first thought.

The third bird in the second set is a buteo. I'm not sure which, given the lighting.

Thanks guys. I was able to pick it out of the flock on two separate occassions, so I think I'm fairly confident.

This time of year hermit is really the only possibility, and the field marks as mentioned support that.

Today, southern Ontario (Peterborough area)

These are almost impossibly horrible shots for this type of ID (pocket camera through binos through windows 30 m away) but, is this gal at least a potential candidate?

As you can see, she is...

I would go with first winter red-shouldered hawk, but not 100% certain.

Common has a bulkier body, more massive bill that isn't upturned like this one, has more colour on the neck with remnants of the white collar, and the back is more checkered rather than speckled.

They are indeed all red-tailed hawks, the first being adult and the other two being young birds.

It's definitely an adult red-tailed, but what a mess. Maybe it got too close to one of the wires :)

The all grey one does look like a slate-coloured, but it also retains something of a hood, so perhaps an intergrade. The brown one does not have enough colour in the flanks or the dark lores of a...

That's my opinion as well. The near wing is drooping and shows no primaries at all. I think this is an injured herring gull.

Cranes yes, but these are Sandhill Cranes. Whoopers have much more black at the wing tips and are whiter.
