My husband took these around lunch time. Such a magnificent bird. This one was fairly large. Their wingspan can reach to nearly 54 inches and I believe this one was pretty close to that. Diving down from a bright blue sky, he tried in vain to catch a mouse. It ran for the trees and disappeared. The hawk landed on this brick wall to watch for other meal possibilities.
