The New Bird...

What bird is this that came to sit,
on the pointy part on the back garage tin roof?

Looking out the window to check on the progress of the snow accumulation, I noticed "something weird" out there.

Being nearly blind as a bat myself, after smashing my nose against the window to try to see it, I grabbed the camera.


The snow was falling pretty heavy and steady, it looked like it was burrowing in.

But what the heck was it?!



"Honey? What is this?" Not thinking as I interuped the Packers game to ask.
"Look's like a squril." (next picture) "A phesant? Move!" he shoved me out of the way to see the play I mistakenly blocked from view.
"Let me look at that." Looking fast and handing it back, "I have no idea. Maybe it's that 'New Bird' from the Christmas song...(chuckle, chuckle).

Do you know what it is?

My guess is Falcon?
Eyass Tiercel Barbary Falcon...
Or is it a hawk?
Adult Male American Kesteral falcon
Hummm...I think it's this
