outside my window

Take this morning from the back stairs at YeOldHouse, which is up against a hillside that sometimes feels like watching and episode of Wild Kingdom.

My best guess from my resources is that this is a Red-shouldered Hawk.  He was huge, and I saw him snacking on a little snake about an hour later.  For perspective, here he is un-zoomed, and he was big enough that I spotted him quite easily from the porch.
