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

I agree with that. I think it looks more like a Cooper's as well.

Here's my two cents:

1. Red shoulder (this pic was taken in CA?)
2. Cooper
3. Red Tail
4. Cooper

Life list: 351

24 to go

Most recent lifers: Red-eyed Vireo, Hooded Warbler, Gull-billed Tern, Palm Warbler, Lesser Nighthawk, Dusky-capped Flycatcher, Little Gull, Glaucous Gull, Thayer's Gull, Ancient Murrelet, Winter Wren 

 
This year's goal: Get life list to 375, see 315 different birds this year. 
 
Seen/heard: 288
To go: 27

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.
