One adult and two immature Red-shouldered Hawks were circling around high overhead, vocalizing loudly. Only got a few shots over an opening through the trees of an immature bird. Image 2 shows a Cooper's Hawk in the same frame with this immature Red-shouldered.

Description from Wikipedia

The Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) is a medium-sized hawk. Its breeding range spans eastern North America and along the coast of California and northern to northeastern-central Mexico. Red-shouldered Hawks are permanent residents throughout most of their range, though northern birds do migrate, mostly to central Mexico. The main conservation threat to the widespread species is deforestation.
