Biggest Bird This Year

Harris Hawk (Parabuteo unicinctus)

Just as I headed out the driveway on Wednesday for parts unknown, right before me was a huge bird perched high in an old tree.  He stood his ground for quite a bit as my resident Northern Mockingbird (a.k.a. Bossy) repeatedly dive-bombed him. 

Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos)

Apparently Bossy thinks he is as big and bad as a Harris Hawk.  Maybe I should change his name to Bad-Ass.
