When I muttered about how big it was, it heard me and looked around. Because of the way the tree was and how close it was to the house, I could not get where I could see the front of the hawk. When you stood back a bit, you could not see it at all due to how high and how many leaves. It never looked directly down at me. The screaming crows and jays in the area kept it distracted.
Red-tailed Hawk ( Buteo jamaicensis)
