For anyone interested, the following checklist was changed to (2) Red-shouldered Hawks, (1-ad., 1-imm).
The accipiter was not changed since I erroneously combined two bird species into one. The photo was of an immature Red-shouldered Hawk, not the accipiter.

> If you know hawks, please check out the “accipiter” photos on the checklist. I think I may have been photographing one hawk when it disappeared out of the viewfinder and a different one flew from the same area. The second one was definitely a long tailed accipiter with either white flanks or a white rump. I couldn’t be sure. Anyway, I “assumed” both sightings were the same bird so labeled the bird in the photos as an accipiter. I can’t really tell the tail length from the photos.
