This hawk is right outside my office window. Even when I pulled the car in the drive and got out he didn't even fly away. These are incredible birds.

It looks like it might be a young one. The ones I've seen around here look to be a bit bigger. As far as I can identify the ones here, by coloring they appear to be Coopers Hawks
The snowy owl we've had for the past four years hasn't been around that I've seen, but the one lonely robin, has been a regular at the feeders all winter.
There are still 4 pairs of goldfinches that stayed for the winter as well. As long as there is thistle seed in the feeder they turn up to empty it every other day.
The 2 billion and six sparrows, 2 Blue Jays and 4 Cardinals and the few chickadees eat about 10 cups of food each day, and I'll continue to feed them as long as they show respect and don't decorate the boats and cars.

NOOOOO!!!! I love bunny's! I know they have to eat, but I don't need to watch it.

Must be hanging in the area or more than one.
Love to see them fly

Me too, it's so cool to watch. I know there are at least two near us.

Is that a shadow of a "plastic Owl" in the background?

The kind that is suppose to scare the predatory birds away?

It is! My neighbor has it mounted on his garage. It doesn't really work because if this hawk wasn't sitting there normally there would be 1000 small birds. It's crazy.

It works for his yard. I don't see crap all over his cars and garage
Our neighbor feeds all the damn black birds in Harrison Twp. Her back yard is COVERED with bird poo and I'm almost glad we don't have a deck or furniture in our yard because everything would be covered also. I'm all for nature and seeing birds but give me a break, these hundreds of birds hang out and poop all over everything. She doesn't have a cute little bird feeder, she throws the feed all over her driveway. These birds scared away all the cute little sparrows that used to hang out too.

My wife feeds every critter in the neighborhood from possums to squirrels, bunnies and birds.

A couple Saturdays ago she was watching them in the backyard when out of nowhere a hawk swoops down and takes out one of her birds.

Now when she sees it she tries to scare it away. I told her she was just attracting his buffet by feeding all those animals.
