The first photo is a young Red-shouldered Hawk. Notice the translucent crescent-shaped "windows" at the end of the wings. Notice also the pale orange "shoulders" and the tail with dark bands thicker than the white bands.

I agree on American Kestrel for the second photo. It did used to be known as "Sparrow Hawk ".

Best,
Jim
