    Hah! I never thought of doing that before.

    His bird is almost as tough as my deer-hunting cat.

    Looks like a golden eagle and it's hunting a jack rabbit, not a deer.

    strangest looking jackrabbit I have ever seen. I guess it could be a jackalope.

    OK - I stand corrected - it does look like a small white-tailed deer (based on neck and forelegs). I have seen large jack rabbits that do look like a small deer from a distance.

    Could be a harpy eagle, judging from the look of the crest in the final frames. Hard to tell, though.

    Edit:
    Nope! Just looked and a harpy has too much white. My memory from the movie was faulty.

    it looks like one of those miniature deer and an immature eagle ---if it was a full size deer, the deer would have higher and longer jumps, and wouldn't have been flung around so easily----

    That's quite interesting. Here in the state of South Jersey, we have a bird that goes by the name of chicken hawk, but I don't think that is its real name. I guess they live on squirrels and rabbits which are quite abundant here as well as other small mammals that I'm not aware of. Deer are abundant here too, but I don't think this bird is large enough to take down even a fawn.

    So you're saying that the bird in the film is a juvenile chicken hawk that has been bamboozled by Foghorn Leghorn into thinking that a deer is a chicken?

    well, the way the deer was running away, it looks chicken

    It looks too big when compared to the jackalope in your livingroom.

    So has South Jersey finally seceded from North Jersey? :biggrin: Yeah, a rabbit is about the limit of what the chicken hawks can handle.

    Cool video...never would have guessed I should click on the smiley either. :rofl:
