nice shots...an ID on the hawk, with its broad wings, it is a buteo. The leading edge of the wing being dark is a good give away for red tail hawk. The Prairie falcon is a much smaller bird with slender wings that are not as adept at soaring.

Thanks for the ID.  It was flying with its tail feathers closed up.  ID makes since as there are a fair number of them in the area.
