This hawk is perched in the same tree on our street in which I recently posted photos of bald eagles and ospreys sitting. It is a very tall Douglas Fir tree and it is near the top of a long slope down to the Willamette River. I am guessing that the view from up there must be spectacular, especially if you are a bird of prey.
This is most likely a red-tailed hawk. Although we can’t see its tail, the rest of it resembles one and they are so common that it is usually a good guess. See its sharp beak? It makes for a perfect eating tool when the bird catches its prey.
