What a weird hawk

I was sitting in my parents sun porch this afternoon when this hawk flew down and started to chill in their bird bath lol. what was even more interesting was the blue jays that I didnt see before, started flapping around and making a ruckus as to warn everything that the hawk was there. I found it absolutely amazing and watched it for almost an hour. This bird sat there for soo long that the jays lost interest and flew off. Sorry I just had to share. We couldn't figure out what the heck it was doing.
In god we trust, all others must pay cash.

LOL. Sometimes at my parents house the seagulls will be standing on the ice during the winter and one of the eagles will land at whatever they are fighting for. Its fun to watch the seagulls scatter.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

He might have just been perched up there as a vantage point to watch for rodents.
Grabbed these cell phone pics at work a while back.
I was able to get up fairly close to him. Redtail sitting on a porto-potty.
