    Still think he's a HE. He is crazy, too. LOVES the cat food.
    I know he's got the beak problem, but he eats just fine and drinks just fine, so I have left him...

    Earlier I was on a thread with much the same hawk bird type question....and folks said it is an EE. Sure looks like that other one. [​IMG]

    Is it me, or is his upper beak curved funny? (Does it ever close completely?)

    I am prtty sure he does close his mouth. I probably need to see to that. But is IS curved, which led me to wonder if he/she was not an odd hawk...
    Thank you!!

    Looks like an EE to me. Are the feet/legs greenish?
