My friend Jerald identified him as a red-shouldered hawk. He knows a lot about birds. You can check out his blog by clicking on his name.
My pictures aren't great. It was raining and he kept moving his head. So I had to set my iso really high and take it through the window.
He did let me get pretty close. I braved the rain but I still set my iso pretty high. In hindsight I wish I would have set it just a little lower. I was afraid he would fly away.
After he looked at me like that I ran back in the house. I'm a chicken. He's a hawk. No need for me to do the math for you is there?
