It would help if you could post larger photos - it is hard to see details on these.

I think you're right with 1,3,4. Think 2 certainly isn't Connecticut, prob another Nashville. Pass on the accipiter

Would you say part of your identification of the hawk is the amount of white in the tail tip?

Steve

I tend not to use the tail tip as a reliable clue, given its variability. As others have now chimed in below, I used general shape and head as overall clues.
