I think #2 is a Coop -- I'm seeing gray in the cheeks and no clear rear edge to them.

Here's my two cents:

1. Red shoulder (this pic was taken in CA?)

2. Cooper

3. Red Tail

4. Cooper

Does anyone have a comment on the two tails other than it looks like it has two tails? What's up with this?

Probably just the wind or the bird preening. Each of the "tails" appear to just be half of the tail feathers split to one side.
