This enormous dude lives under neighbor’s deck...they asked if I’d bring my hunter (dog) over but I didn’t want to be responsible for his demise...so groundhog will live to see another day (& likely years, as destructive as he is). 😉

Look like 1st year light juvenile red-tailed hawk. Front (not photographed bc we surprised each other) w/ dark streaks on white background. Approx 17-18” w/big wingspan (too big for Cooper’s & tail too short). Photos taken half block away w/zoom lens (200mm f2.8).

For those not familiar w/ my yard, it’s hard to tell relative size - but this hawk is >30% smaller than my Cooper’s regulars w/smaller head. It ate one of my feeder birds (junco) 😢. Last photo taken from 5’ away - it wasn’t afraid! The Cooper’s that frequent daily are much less apt to stick around when I’m outside!
