Not sure if you meant Broad-winged or Red-shouldered but these are the latter.

I like the term "Broad-shouldered" for the questionable juvies, B) this one is a definite Red-shouldered.

They may be Broad-shouldered Hawks or they may just be wearing pads.

Broad-shouldered would be a good new common name for Sharp-shinned.
