Possible Different Adult Red-tail, and the Woodside Houses Fledgling

I spotted an adult red-tail this evening that may be different from the one I saw near the 7 train last week. I can't exactly match the brown spot patterns on their chests, so it's possibly a different adult. It spent about 25 minutes perched atop this lamppost on Woodside Avenue. I managed to find it about 30 minutes later perched on a fire escape on my building. I was tempted to go up to the roof to get a few pictures, but it was to dark out to get any quality photos. I also managed to find the Woodside fledgling perched atop a fire escape only two blocks from where the adult hawk was spotted.

Excellent photos! I didn't know they are around the neighborhood.
