So we call it feather foot I can't tell if it's a male or female. It is curious and BOLD doesn't appear to be afraid. I often find it in the garage and I have found it in the basement by itself. What is it? It looks like a really tall hawk! We called it fugly for a while since it was funky and ugly. Took FOREVER to feather out. It's 6 months old. The feathers on the tail have some green sheen to them now. Feathers go all down the front of his bright yellow feet.
