Red-Tailed Hawks

I saw a Hawk fly low overhead and wished I had my camera ready. It turned a little ways off and I was able to get a shot decent enough to see what kind of hawk it was. 
At first I thought it might be a Swainson's, but the light wings say Red-Tailed.

 It landed on a rock and was very quickly followed by another which flew close by.
As the one flew off to the left, the other jumped up and banked left as well.
These shots are cropped from a 10x zoom, so they are somewhat blurry.  Would have needed a really good 400mm or better lens to get a very decent shot.
