The first one was seen early this month just west of Sacramento - a Cooper's?

The second was seen in June 2020 on a cliff side of Mt Diablo in SF Bay - both Peregrines and Prairie Falcons are seen intermittently here.  Any thoughts on which one?  Prairie?

Photos aren't great.  Thanks for the help.

Coopers or Sharp Shinned Juv perhaps from Yolo.JPG

Thanks to all - Tony, looking at Peterson's guide, would this likely be a juvenile male Sharpie?

Oop, yes, Tony is right (of course 😉)

And it is a young bird, due to the streaked chest and brown back and crown.
