Today I came downstairs to find a hawk sitting 3 feet away from our front door. After looking closer, I saw that it had a starling under his talons! He was just sitting there, staring into our house. After researching it, I think it was a red-tailed hawk. Red-tailed hawks live in North America and have reddish-brown tails. After a while we scared him way, hoping he would take his messy breakfast with him. Sadly, he didn't. He probably left a very hard worked for meal in our front yard.
