This guy hung around my place for a couple days looking for a free meal. My Aussies did the most wonderful job of protecting their flock, I was so proud watching them work. DH had a friend at one time that worked with raptors, DH said he thought this was a Frugenious(sp?) Hawk, they are actually a eagle. I can tell you he was a large bird and beautiful. He certainly wasn't afraid of me when I approached the pole he was on to snap the pic, looked rather annoyed actually. Kept my chickies close. The few times he flew across the property the Aussies were right on him, but I still kept the chickens close in with me. I can certainly appreciate his beauty. Glad he deceided to move on though.
