Roughly 20 inch length. This young hawk has an injured/infected left eye. He is either extremely "tame" or not well. Has been catching many sparrows from the neighbor's feeder, but allows us to get within 15-20 feet without looking upset, At one point he flew over my head, wings brushing my hair gently
I ended up taking 92 photos and whittling my collection of this bird down to about 50. I'll have two spottings worth.
