Great portrait. Really get that this is a raptor. We see them in flight mostly on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake. Easy to spot even at a distance. Now they fly and the white heat. they have rather sweet chirps. Sort of surprising. We usually see them as nesting pairs, even in flight.

Ben Franklin wanted our national bird to be the turkey. I wonder if the US would have had a different international attitude if we had done that? Would we have been less aggressive? Less militaristic?
