Immature Red-tailed Hawk, enjoying bird breakfast atop a hay bale.
Thanks for the ID help!
Not much to go from with these pics but the dark patagial bar on fore edge of wing leads me to believe this is a red tailed hawk.
Heard a sharp screech and saw this when I turned my head! I think it was people watching.
The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range....
