Red Maple seedlings or something else?

My neighbor has a very pretty maple (japanese maybe? it has dark red leaves) in his front yard close to my side. I spied these little seedlings popping up in two different spots in the side yard between our two properties. Do you think they may be seedlings?

i am far from expert, but that doesn't look like a maple - looks more Quercus (oak)

or what carol said ; )

Here is a link that might be useful: oak seedling id - google images

Well, color me silly! I got snookered by the reddish colors and blinded by the thought that maybe it was a japanese maple, lol! Found another one out in my front flowerbed this morning too!

Thank you everyone!
