Thanks, T. This guy is about is about 45cm tall with a wingspan roughly 3 times that. I've seen them take out mourning doves but lately their favorite prey seems to be grackles. They seem to have thinned out the population around here as the grackles don't seem to be as prevalent at my feeders and I LIKE that.
