Red-tailed Hawk. They eat our chickens :mad: :mad:
If he is sitting that close to you, he is eyeing up your cat or something tasty.

I thought so too but it would be really unusual to see a goshawk this time of year in Maine. They are there in the summer but haven't yet discovered coal heat so they migrate a bit south to about MD and VA during the winter.

That's a Broad Winged Hawk. See Wikapedia.
I see this hawk almost everyday as I drive along highways.

Red Tailed Hawk

The "Red" of the Red-tailed Hawk is most easily seen when it is soaring on a sunny day.
As the Hawk turns or wheels you will see the chestnut patch at the tail highlighted by the sun.
This bird looks rather young.
