I believe that's a red tail Dave.
Nice photo.

Nice photo.

I think so, it might be a juvenile. A couple years ago a juvenile Coopers Hawk or Red-Tailed hit our glass French Doors, and sat perched on the porch railing for about 4 days "until the bells stopped ringing." Apparently that's pretty typical behavior.

They keep the squirrel population in check (along with the foxes). If only they'd do something about the deer :-)

I caught this bear in the yard yesterday, just as he pulled the bottom off one of our bird feeders. You can see the bottom of the feeder in his front paws, and the seed is pouring out of the feeder onto his head.



We often get bears in the yard, but this is larger than most that we have see.

Here is the Common Flicker up from Brazil. Spends a couple weeks every Spring.
Then heads North...He returns in the early Fall, couple of days. Then continues South.
This is his 25th year.. Used be a family of 3. Last few years just the one..
At the suet feeder early AM, then at the top of his favorite tree in back yard. When
he pecks, it sounds like a jack hammer. The entire surrounding neighbor hood area
can hear him'...it doesn't look it, but he the size of an adult Hawk'...

Ted, are both those photos showing the same bird? 'Cause the one in the top photo looks a lot like a mourning dove to me.

Ray, yes it is the same bird. The tree shot it does resemble a morning dove quite a bit except the size.
Plus his head is turned some what hiding his bill.
That tree is at least 150 feet where he's perched.
That's a full zoomed 29 times digital shot no tripod.
as this guy moves fast. I've spent days with the camera(s) tripods 2 and 3 all set up just waiting for
him at different locations on my property to no avail.
Then when least expected, there he is....So it's difficult to get a good shot of him...
