We were packing up the car for a weekend wedding in Vermont when my husband glanced up and saw a big raptor on the chimney.

What a stunningly beautiful bird, huh? A big guy, too. He was surveying the yard as if checking out the various meals to be had at each of the very crowded feeders.

Since Red Tails aren't known for eating feeder birds, I'm not sure why he seems so interested.

I was impressed to he could turn his head nearly as far as an owl!

For an idea of the odd scenario we are seeing here, and the size of this bird, here is a look from afar.
