Smaller than Hawks but large enough to take fledgling Sparrows and Finches. We always have a few soaring in the neighborhood in the Fall accompanied by an entourage of more agile Sparrows that harry it to protect offspring.
One riding the thermals and changing direction with a twitch of that magnificent tail is something to see.
Usually try to shit right on your head.
They are really good at it.
I enjoyed the game, as I know them pretty good, and usually manage to avoid being a bird toilet. I laughed a lot when it was happening.
This is all from youth. Long enough ago that there may not even be any birds left.
Great photo! The way the feathers are camo-colored, looks just like a pigeon from below. Pretty awesome adaptation.
