My guess is Northern Red Oak, but I'll check back here to see what others say. Here's a nice site for comparing oaks http://www.cas.vanderbilt.edu/bioimages/pages/compare-oaks.htm

I think oaks are known to be a bit difficult to identify correctly. I would agree with Kathy, it is probably a red oak. We had a neighbor who transplanted an oak from a woods and in spite of asking everyone, including the cooperative extension service, he never could get a definite answer on what kind of oak it was.

Kathy & Carol: You're both probably right - they're probably red oaks. In our neighborhood, we have fully grown red, pin and bur oaks, so that is the most likely answer. Although I'd like to think there was a fourth variety (swamp white oak), I'll have to stick with the law of averages and agree that they're little red oaks.
