This is not a good shot due to miserable lighting, perch, etc; but thought some of you may find it interesting. I took this last month and tried to clean it up to get a better look.

Some of you may have seen bigger but this isthe largest Red-tailed Hawk I can remember seeing. At a distance and inpoor light, I first thought it to be an Eagle. The size of that pair of mouse catchers wrapped around that wire is amazing.

Hey, you did a good job of making that shot very presentable. I like it. Man, what big talons you have grandma. Yipes! Why are you so surprised at the large size? I thought everything was bigger in Texas?
Good work,
Steve
