I Spy

I Spy with my little eye, something that

has a wingspan of 29" to 39"

a body length of 13" to 17" plus a tail length of 5.7" to 7.5"

Buteo platypterus platypterus
Where are you going, Hawkeye?
The Northern Broad-winged Hawk was very tolerant of Mom's presence even when she was taking pictures with the flash but he decided to fly off once I came outside. (The camera sitting on the railing just 10 feet from the hawk should have garnered sharp images but, unfortunately, no such luck! It was very windy so this may have been a factor.)  Here's a short video of the hawk trying to make sense of Mom's whistles and chirps.
