Went out my back door one evening,I saw this big bird going by ,crows were chasing and screaming.My husband says thats not a hawk,its an eagle.It turned its head.It was.Was smallerbthan I thought they were.Unless it was a young one. I just always thought they were big.
We have a p[air of hawks that nested edge of our property in the trees.The past few days theyve been yelling alot.Im thinking thier young hatched.

How cool Bulldinkie!
That would be neat if they were nesting around your area. We have a huge nature park about 25 miles from here, and bald eagles are finally nesting there. One day, I saw one flying just overhead, when I was driving close to there. I too found it smaller than I thought it would be. Maybe you'll be seeing more of them now!

RE: Thought We've Been seeing an Eagle...

If it's head was white, then it was not a young one. Bald eagles don't develop the white head and tail until they are about three years old.

The young are often bigger, at least heavier than adults. You need perspective to get an idea of size. When you see one flying with a Red-tailed Hawk you'll know what I mean.
