Golden/Bald Eagle

Saw two raptors high in sky interacting. When I got binoculars on the birds, the clealry smaller, chasing bird was a Red-tailed Hawk. By then, the eagle was flying away from view and at a distance that only an adult bald eagle would have been obvious...it wasn't that...could have been Golden or immature Bald.

Likely continuing bird, with finches, bluebirds, yellow-rumped warblers and juncos feeding on ground on softball field outfield area between tennis courts and baseball field fence.

There is very likely a second spizella type sparrow in this group. When the Clay-colored was in horrible light, a second similarly sized/shaped sparrow joined the Clay-colored but I couldn't distinguish any features. Before I could get an angle, the birds flushed to trees and only the Clay-colored returned to the ground in next 10-15 minutes before I had to leave.
