This was pretty crazy. I was putting at the practice green, and all of a sudden I see this Red-Tailed hawk, wings spread wide, flying straight at me just a couple feet above the ground. I froze. It had a (dead) squirrel in it's mouth. Effortlessly, it veered to the left of me and flew up into this tree right next to the Chick Evans practice green, where it proceeded to hang out for at least 5 minutes. I've never been that close to a hawk before! Here's the hawk zoomed in. You can see the squirrel tail.
The Cook County Forest Preserve owns Chick Evans golf course, along with 10 other golf courses, including Burnham Woods, Billy Caldwell, Edgebrook, George W. Dunne, Indian Boundary, and more.
This is the tree next to the practice green. You can see the hawk in the very center of the photo. I never realized the massive wingspan on these guys. Not gonna lie, I was a little freaked out when I first saw it. Huge, fast, and coming right at me. All part of the psychological roller coaster one experiences at historic Chick Evans golf course.
