    Well done @Jinxy245. He's been out there for hours, Left for a bit and is now on an different branch. I am afraid if I try and go outside for a pic, I would scare him off. Here is a closeup.

    I had a whole family of those in a nest outside of my house last year. 3 chicks, mom and pop.

    They hunt other birds. I know this due to the large amount of severed dove and finch feet underneath the nest. Neat little pile of remains. Lots of poop. It was fun watching the babies grow up, but I don't miss the mess.

    Yes, we have a family of squirrels and fair amount of blue jays that hang out in the trees in back. Interesting to see if he is going to grab a meal. Fun to look up how to identify hawks. He could also be a Coopers Hawk, no black malabar stripe on his cheek (characteristic of the Broadwing) and longer tail feathers than the pics of Broadwings. And the Migration map patterns are much better for Colorado for the Coopers.

    My phone just wouldn't do this justice so I had to bust out the Olympus.
