An Early Christmas Meal in Astoria

A hawk that I have seen flying around the area decided to drop in on us last Sunday morning 12/23/07 but was kind enough to bring his/her own food. It was early, overcast, raining and the light was not great but I managed to grab a few shots with the only long lens I own from my kitchen window. We think it is a either a red-tail or goshawk but don't know for sure so if there are any bird watchers out there let us know.

That's wild! (pun intended...:)
I think we saw a hawk flying above our yard a while back.
I wonder if the hawk got his breakfast from the slaughter house on 31st street...
