    I've seen this bird several times but it's hard to get close to it and the Tamron 18-250 is not sharp at all from 200 to 250 but I did the best I could. I figure this guy is responsible for the loss of some of my chickens. The bird is actually kin to the falcons and is more a scavenger than killer. He or she is a beauty though. The images are pretty bad, but he was a long way off too.
