All birds seen within the last two weeks.

1) Red-tailed Hawk? Seen N. Cape Coral.
2) Spotted Sandpiper? Unfortunately this little bird was being very secretive. Seen in mangroves on Estero Bay.
3 & 4) I know this should be obvious, but I'm drawing a blank. The bird was all puffed up due to a cold wind. Seen in the Estero Bay Preserve.

Many thanks!

For what its worth, Spotted Sand was my initial impression of #2 (and without reading your proposals before taking a look).
