Hawk, Thrush and Sparrow (Northern Virginia)

Hi,

I took these during my morning walk today (Oct. 23, 2013) in Northern Virginia.

I think that these are:
1. Red-shouldered Hawk (juv)
2. Hermit Thrush
3. Song Sparrow (I have slight doubt that it might be a Swamp, but I think it is a Song).

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

I think the hawk is a red-tail but agree with the other two IDs.

1 looks more like a Cooper's Hawk

Damn. I originally said Cooper's but changed it. The tail seemed too short.
