JUV Massive accipiter. Observed landing in tree along bayshore, then taking flight and landing in another tree less than 100 yards away-- all the way being SILENTLY pursued by a blue jay and several smaller songbirds! The jay was dwarfed in size (easily half as big) compared to this bulky, broad- bodied, big-headed, thick-tailed accip. The morning sun accentuated the thick "noodles" streaking on a buff-colored breast. The silent chase continued at a leisurely pace. :)
