OK - I had narrowed it down to Mississippi Kite or Swainson's Hawk (both white headed as nestlings), but apparently Mississippi Kite is it.

To be honest my first gut reaction was Broad-winged, but I suppressed it because of the paucity of local birds. However, looking at my older Wheeler & Clark photographic guide, I see a pic of a...

Although the area is clearly in breeding range, Broad-wingeds are uncommon around here outside of migration. Not impossible, but we consider it a pretty big deal when we see one June - August.

Yes it seems like we have two different birds here - a Cooper's in the first set of pics and a Sharp-shinned in the second set. At any rate - accipiters and not falcons.
