I got lost between the Q and the ED.

Hah! I never thought of doing that before.
His bird is almost as tough as my deer-hunting cat.
pshh my hunts nwbs.
Ah. Nice video.
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.
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? 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:
I wonder if it's a clip of this guy's bird at work...
Do you mean North Joisey?
I think that's Nawth Joisey. Central Jersey is the only place in the state where people know how to speak properly. Afterall, you South Jersey folks think your kids color with crawns, while the rest of us know they're called crayons.
First of all, we in South Jersey have no accent, everyone else does. Secondly, we don't color with crawns we write with them.
I was thinking golden eagle too. It's bigger than a red-tail, and if it's not an eagle it's almost certainly some kind of buteo.
And that's a little fawn they released to its doom. In the initial frame you can see the bird on the guy's arm, so it's not so incredibly big. The deer is incredibly small!
It might not even be a Golden. There are eagles all over the world, and falconry is an ancient form of hunting, so this clip could have been shot anywhere. It may not even be a deer, but an antelope or some other small ungulate.
The deer isn't that small. Whitetails don't get very big, and it looks like a whitetail. It could be a yearling, but it's not a fawn. That bird is pretty huge. If you pause the video on the first frame or two, you'll see that bird is about half the height of that guy (I don't know how he's holding such a large bird). I'm not sure if the bird really "bagged" the deer though. Definitely quite the tumble going on, but that could be because it got lucky catching the deer mid-air on a leap as it was running and knocking it off balance. That doesn't look all that different from the tumbles I took with sheep when I was first learning to catch them and only succeeded in knocking us both off-balance, but never actually caught them (they'd get up and run off while I was still brushing the muck off myself).
Separate names with a comma.
