Have a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend everyone.
That's Awesome! Around here, they are almost as bad as the Gulls in the PNW! LOL Interesting "problem" to have!
Up here in the real PNW (vancouver Island ) they are huge , yours are 2.5' some of ours have 6 to 8' wing span making them 4' plus . they pickup small dogs / rabbits in heavy weather with wind & a few of my ducks .
Up our streams we count 1000's & every 7 years just under 10K .
We get some 6 footers down here, we even get some pretty big assed Owls and Ospreys too ( even the twin rotor versions) quite a bit!
How do you cook them?
Same as Chicken, BBQ! LOL
Around here we call those " Flying Rats".... I have three mated Pairs, living right close.... Been here all winter.. They keep the squirrel population at bay....
Beautiful @Seepalaces. Thanks for sharing
Great pick @Seepalaces
I had a mating pair end their talon to talon death stoop just yards from my windshield a few years ago. They are bigger birds than they appear to be when in flight.
They are a rare sight in Southeast Texas but every year I seem to see at least one riding the thermals in the early spring.
Bigger is true. We don't have to many around here, but I saw one one morning at a job I was on, it swooped down across the street in front of a school bus, it was going for the ditch line, must have been a rabbit or something there, the bus had to slam on breaks to keep from hitting it , and it looked like it covered the whole road . It was an easy 6 ft if not 8 ft wingspan. Beautiful animal nevertheless .
We have some that live around here. They live around the river.
I had one pair do that & not break apart & fall into the forest behind the ranch house . We have 10 H fenced off & the rest is for the wildlife etc & they have a travel corridor .. I'm sitting in the back of the house reading with a chair that has a pocket in arm for my beer , right beside the pond & then the forest .
So I hear a huge rustle & noise coming at me , out breaks a Eagle & can't make clearance over the house without running up the roof while flapping and went kinda over me, since I spooked & flew backwards spilling my beer & was on my back thinking it was a mountain lion or bear !! Wet pants & a dead beer , This happened a second time when the mate did the same thing , only one beer & two spooks !!
