It was so I low to the driveway it was maybe 4 feet above my gate and it's wing span had to be 4 feet wide. They can be 3.5 to 4.5 feet wide. The sparrows were frozen silent. Once the hawk was over the lake bed the sparrows flew a few at a time from my Redtip bushes over my tallest thickest oak tree.
I step out to the drive and watched it soar over treetops and rooftops screeching the entire time. Till I could no longer hear it.
The wingspan shadow on the driveway was as wide as the driveway, which is what made me look up.
Glorious, absolutely a multi-sense event.
I got goose bumps!!!
God, I love living here.
Plus the Ruby Throat Hummers are chasing away my green hummers.
Even though it leaks & bees show up am using the feeder anyway.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
