When I saw the size of the rat I was freaking out because I'm thinking it must have been caught in our neighborhood! Yuck!!! Hubby actually took these pics. The hawk was about 50 ft from us and then he flew to a chimney which made him about 100 ft from us. I don't like to see them around too often, but this is a beautiful bird. This one was about 16" to 18" tall. I try to remind people that hawks are in the area and it's a good idea to keep extra small pets on leashes.
Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!
