We took this shot of a drag race between a Redtail and a jumbo jet earlier this month in North Arlington...
The photo is an optical illusion as a result of the foreshortening that occurs with a telephoto lens. The Red-tailed Hawk and the plane are nowheres near each other -- the Redtail is tiny in comparison, just much, much, much closer.

Its this the reason some airplane is crashing because of this bird? Don't misunderstood my question I'm just curious.

Great picture but it isn't a *jumbo jet*. It's a Bombardier Dash 8 departing Newark. clicky here
Saw a female bufflehead in the little tidal pool next to the building I work in yesterday. By the time I ran in and back out with my camera she swam around the corner. Rats. Next time. Our local muskrat is getting bigger munching on the grass and I expect to see the groundhogs pretty soon. It's fun working on Chubb Ave.
