I'm not sure what this bird was that I saw this afternoon but I think it may have been a falcon.

It hopped up from my neighbour's yard onto the back fence and then hopped down into another neighbours yard behind mine. Please let me know if this is a falcon.

I have also found another small bird that originally I thought was a finch but it is smaller than a finch and its beak is longer and narrower than a finch can someone please identify this bird for me?

Thanks for the pictures Sheila, I hope one of our readers will know the identity of both of these birds.

I will also post these pictures on our Facebook page.

Upon a closer look, your raptor could possibly be a Cooper's Hawk. I think I see some barring on the tail that would be consistent with a Coop.

Red Tail & Yellow Rumped Warbler

I can't be 100%, but I believe you had a Red Tailed Hawk (Juvenile) perched on your fence.
2nd bird I think may be a Yellow Rumped Warbler.
(I'm new to bird ID-ing, so I apologize if I have given the wrong ID's)
