Saw this bird circle several times above Toad Mountain, then fly off with a second similar-looking bird. Thanks for your ideas.

In the second photo I believe I see white flared covert feathers. Recently someone else posted a similar photo and I believe it was a Northern Goshawk.

Cooper's Hawk can do that too.  I'm no expert (I've seen exactly one Northern Goshawk), but this bird's slim look makes me think Cooper's.
