Northern Red Oak - Tree Swing Identified

Last Summer, I posted a photo of a sign that we came across at Waterfall Glen that detailed the difference between the various Oak trees based on their foliage.  About a month later, I put that new knowledge into practice and identified one of the two large Oak trees in our yard as a Northern Red Oak.  (Actually...I'm pretty sure that it is a Northern Red Oak.)

In that post, I mentioned that the other large Oak tree (with our tree swing) had leaves way too high up in the air to identify the species and that I should wait until some fall.  

Well...thanks to the squirrels in our yard, there are little clumps of leaves that have fallen in the past couple of weeks.  Here's a closeup of one of them showing the pointed leaves with deep lobes.

Totally a Northern Red Oak, right?
