Cooper’s Hawks

Looks like it’s a birthday week of raptors. Here’s a Cooper’s Hawk with nictitating membranes in action.
This bird was pointed out by half a dozen Blue Jays screaming bloody murder.
An hour later, on the other side of Green-Wood. Same bird? Maybe, maybe not. This one dropped down out of sight behind a yew and then emerged on the ground on the other other side of the tree before flying further away.
Earlier that day, on the edge of Sunset Park.
The day before, in a tree a little bit closer to the apartment.

All immature birds. How many individuals? At least two?
