I concur with Ed_r.

There is {was} a Red Tailed hawk nest at O'Hare that I was watching for more than a few years. This year, I can't find the nest even though the tree is still there . It's not a matter of habitat loss as this tree is in one of those permanent natural areas {I've forgotten the legal name}. Oh well the crotch of this big tree is such that another pair should move in shortly.

I've seen quite a few "wild animals" within the boundries of O'Hare. Up to and including a Snowy Owl . Anybody who knows the range of a Snowy Owl knows just how rare a sight it was.

Def. a redtail. Awesome animals.

On another note, I watched a periguin falcon pick up a pigeon right in front of me 2 years ago.

I was sitting outside on at a chinese resturant downtown and a falcon came down and grabbed a pigeon. Took him up in the tree 30 feet from me and ate lunch with me.

All those preditory birds are awesome to watch.

My buddy feeds the bald eagles when he goes fishing up in the UP of michigan. They seem to beg... they wait till you catch something then hang out right by you. Toss some fish up on the piers and they come in and grab it. pretty sweet.

Back in WA, we had problems with the Baldies. They were notorious for flying off with cats and small dogs.

Unfortunatly the sometimes grab something bigger than they can carry, and their claws CANNOT unlock untill they set the prey down. One tried to fly off with a 2 Year old child. It dragged the poor little girl down the street untill it hit the deck totaly exhausted.

Beautifull creatures.

A bird carrying off a small dog or cat is not a problem.

It is pest control.

As for the little kid... guess that depends on how annoying he was
